33 pitches, 12 pickoff throws for Andy.
Wake up, Offense!
Nice post Mike, I was about to post that on the last thread, but it closed before I hit add.
Pettitte’s pitch count is at 45?
You missed the joke. Try again
No, actually, I didn’t.
My sarcasm detector is still in the shop, sorry
No problem. Bring it to Harold’s. Quick turn around.
A-rod. Double. callin it.
or a walk.
OK OK homerun.
Or an A-BOMB
I’m sure your happy to be wrong
I’ll take it.
A-Rod’s in Southern California, where we have In-N-Out, so he gave us the “double double”.
12 pickoff throws for Andy
Gotta love Andy saying “Here’s what I think of the pathetic stolen base you worked so damn hard for” by immediately getting Figs to weakly pop out.
I fucking love this team.
Two RAB legends at the “game”:
Tough to watch when the stadium’s upside down, I bet.
Rotate the pic.
Your monitor is upside down.
No, seriously, it’s fixed now.
You know what the problem was? I was standing on my head.
UWS and pat?
No. Pat’s not allowed within 100 feet of a woman due to the conditions of his parole.
That’s Rebecca and I.
lol. I keed, I keed
You’re missing a grit beard. Work on that during the off-season.
That’s Rebecca and me.
who’s the sleepy asian and angry white middle-aged dude behind you?
how packed is that place?
FREE ENTRY? WTF?
Fucking Eric gets all the hot chicks.
there ya go
Gotta generate some additional runs.
Bye bye ball
He’s a god. He has to be.
If he frosts the hair again … just call him THOR.
I wish I could call him mine.
That HR didn’t tie the game or give the Yankees a lead. So unclutch.
What a stat padder.
Ha. I was just about to post that.
forget about it.
And that’s why you don’t fall behind 3-0 to A-Rod!
/J. Walter Weatherman
Very belatedly…I love this comment.
That’s never landing.
I find it a bit amusing that everyone was so concerned about the starting pitching of the Yankees being the main weak point and they’ve thrown something like a 1.50 ERA, AND our offense was a guarantee to score 5 runs a game with virtually everyone contributing. Also, A-Rod wouldn’t show up.
Another HR from A-Rod.
The Yankees have been winning completely contrary to how almost everyone thought we’d win.
A-Rod is in full-fledged beastmode.
The Yanks already had the lead. What a stat-padding selfish bastard.
Al: Yo, we killin it.
Alex Alex Alex
The NY Times did an article on him today and why he’s so, I don’t know, good this year.
News Flash to the Times: He’s always been good. Kinda why we got him.
Anyone else have a shrine at home worshipping Mo, G-ter and/or AROD? Because I do.
I swear I just went to backyard to do something between innings and came back 2-0..he is making it must watch at bats..
I thought the Yankees weren’t going to be able to hit HRs in the postseason due the strength of other teams playoff pitching
and no bandbox in Anaheim
another cheapie homerun. those damn yankees.
Good God A-Rod, Good God.
A-Rod’s been beating pitches like they stole something. Thanks again Kate Hudson!
Can A-rod and Jeter get Co-MVP?
They’re certainly co-MVPs of my heart!
I love 12 pitches for the opposing pitcher and no outs.
If Pujols is looking for his elbow ligament , he should consider giving Alex a call.
A-Rod want his spot back!!!
Am I the only one that is having an annoying sound with the audio? No, I don’t mean Buck and McCarver’s announcing. It’s some sort of static/buzz thing. Tried changing channels, and it only seems to be on Fox.
After A-Rod hit that homer it’s official, Kate Hudson has the best pussy in the world.
Kate Hudson for Playoff MVP..
I want whatever Kate Hudson is giving to ARod. I will be CEO by the end of the month.
Goal for this inning:
Get Weaver to 75 pitches
Why settle for 75, when we can drive him out of the game this inning? You’re too soft on Weaver.
I’m being conservative here.
Only thing better than reaching your goal?
these at-bats are gorgeous
so how about this anaheim crowd….who would know this was a playoff game
The rally monkey is still on set shooting a movie.
They’ll liven up when he gets there.
the sound of one stick thundering
I wanna make this observation: Everybody’s talking about A-Rod’s improved attitude, and there’s an instinct to be skeptical about how much of a difference that actually makes. But, have you heard any of his interviews over the past few months? He’s been giving A+ interviews, every time. Easily deflecting praise to his teammates, giving humble and team-first responses when asked about his own achievements, and sounding relaxed and sincere and unproblematic the whole time. He really does seem to have his head screwed on straight.
Its the magic pussy MAAAAN
Damn Matsui wearing the concrete cleats ?
RAB New Feature: Create Your Own Punch Line!
Joe Buck: “Matsui doesn’t run like he used to…
McCarver: When I say Cage I mean batting cage..
It’s the A-Rod and Captain show. Once the others join in more consistently, we’ll really be tough…or tougher!
and andy andy pettitte
This is some funny shit.
c’mon Robbie. Repeat AB result.
Stop digging pitches out the dirt.
Cmon Swish, that 3rd run is important.
Anyone at the Stadium? How are they reacting?
No but it sounds like they are sucking on their thundersticks.
There are no thundersticks at Yankee Stadium. We are not douches.
i think he means YS
Wait a minute I’ve seen this inning somewhere before…
oh no …it’s cano
Robbie continuing his RISP fail. And hey, this looks familiar: 1st and 3rd with one out and Swisher up.
okay swisher, now lets try this again.
Next AB, AROD tries to hit one out with a thunder stick…just for shits and giggles.
come on guys you can score on an out
Ah, they said Cano is an RBI man.
That’s pretty funny. They have how long to prepare for this series?
Well, honestly, shouldn’t they be up to date on all team, considering they are sportscasters. And it’s not like the Yankees are the Royals or something.
I don’t want to see him let off the hook again. It’s time to get blood thirsty.
Anyone else hear Tim McCarver call Robbie Cano “an excellent RBI man”? In what universe has this man been living? Does he watch baseball?
maybe he was talking about RBI Baseball. CC is really good at that too.
I think it’s pretty clear to Yankee fans that have listened to McCarver this series that he hasn’t watched them play other than the X number of times they’ve played on Fox.
He just has no clue what he’s talking about.
we need a hit badly here.
not really. A Sac would do just fine.
0 for the last 17 with RISP
At least the pitch count is going up up up
come on shit guys thats twice
Swisher and Cano are just terrible.
Swisher that’s twice man. Get the fucking run in.
Swish looked overmatched in that AB.
He threw no strikes to swisher but the 1st one.
Ugh. 8 LOB between Swisher and Cano. 2 for Melky (hoping that changes this AB) and 0 combined for everyone else.
unbelivable..this team is supposed to best offense in ML..how the hell they can’t get runner in from 3rd ?
Seriously? A fly ball? How difficult?
Ahh man. I’ll give him credit, that was a great pitch but Swisher and Cano have been black holes this playoffs.
and Tex and Damon…we can’t afford all these blackholes.
Fucking Weaver is walking a thin line. He’ll get his.
Aight Melk. I know you got it this time.
come on leche
two out dagger
Fuck yo, Weaver is just throwing off speed pitches.
he would have walked in a run if they just didnt swing the damn bat
wasted opportunities suck
6 straight outs by these three. Ugh!
Um…correct me if I’m wrong, anatomically speaking, but isn’t that just extra skin on the elbow?
There was Darfur, so what’s the new one? What’s Darfive?
lmaoo “whatevers in there”
hehe I love Melky
This is very disappointing. That’s twice this situation has played out. Thankfully Arod got his AWESOME on early.
0 for the last 18 with RISP. That’s just not good enough.
Fuck You Swisher
Fuck You Melky
You two and Cano should go apologize to Andy for continually fucking up
::gives trublue a rally monkey to hug::
i need something this should be a 5 run game
Swisher didn’t even need to get a hit, just a deep enough flyout.
Playoff pitching >>>>> Swisher
Patience young grasshoppa
Oh, stop it. You’ve been hating on Swish all year. There’s no reason to believe he cant hit playoff pitching, you cant draw conclusions from that few at-bats.
shit this offense is cold as ice Jeter Arod and seven guys not doing shit
Weaver is at 79 pitches.
I feel like we’re losing even though we’re up by 2. I’d bet we all feel that way.
Nope. we have 2 runs they have non. That means we’re winning. Yes, it’s frustrating, but we are still winning.
I know. I just don’t feel the usual degree of excitement. It’s like masturbating with an old rubber glove and a ton of lube. Sure, it’s still kind of pleasurable, but damn, it’s also kind of painful.
I don’t, Pettitte is dealing and we’ll be into the meaty part of the Angels bullpen by the 6th at the latest. There are runs to be had and the Yankees will get them in eventually.
Weaver has thrown maybe 5 offspeed pitches in the zone and the Yanks have swung at 30 that are out of the zone.
I don’t care how great any two players are, you can’t depend on just two hitters…
0-6 risp… after 0-8 in game 2
they are killing me. We should have 5 runs by now. Lets hope Andy can keep pitching his ass off.
Well. That was unfortunate.
Cano, Swish and Melk, same result.
12 men left on base between those three – 0-6 as a team.
Cmon Andy, pick up the scared children sucking air today.
Oh well, now Andy can just put the crowd back in that catatonic state they were in before those last few outs.
The Yanks should be getting a couple runs off Weaver rite now. Oh Well, Yanks still lead.
Damn fine ass commercial.
We should be ahead by more. Cano and Swisher are keeping it close.
don’t forget Melky
Hopefully these stranded runners won’t come back to hurt us.
:knows they won’t:
Geez, everybody, chill out. Weaver made some good pitches there. Yes it was disappointing, but we’re winning this game.
How badly does Joe Buck want the Angels to score some runs.
Eric Karabell and Peter Pascarelli want the Angels to win.
LOL that old lady was full of win.
I’d like to see them run away with it at this point. I’ve had enough damn heart attacks this playoff season.
Is Weaver that good or is everybody but Jeter, A-Rod, JoPo, and Matsui that bad today?
Damon, Tex, Cano, Swisher, and Melky are all slumping
It’s odd how such a great lineup top to bottom can be so bad with RISP during the regular season and utterly horrible in the postseason.
Maybe Kevin Long has been hitting the sauce since Game 2 of the ALDS.
HOLY CRAP HE COULD STEAL HOME…. FROM THIRD!!!!!!!
another great commet from Big Tim
Elsbury steals home from second, sometimes even from first base. He’s just that awesome.
sometimes he steals home from home
Amazing that we’ve yet to lose in the playoffs and are having the toughest time hitting with RISP
That old lady thought she was tupac
It’s a Makavelli/Axl sighting.
What was that?
Hall of Famer Rod Carew (he converted!)
I think Damon has been playing a very solid LF during the playoffs.
Weaver’s at 79 pitches after four. The rate he’s going, he’s not gonna be in there by the 6th.
they get excited for loud fly outs? Really?
No he didn’t, did he swing? Yes he did.
Abreu has made 4 outs this series that were liners right at Johnny.
Heh, I like that Inside, outside, outside, thats behind us.
That tightened the ol’ sphincter
ground ball andy
You got this, Andrew.
Was you talking to me?
/Gay guys from Seinfeld’d
Andy has lost command this inning.
Man, Bobby is some kind of bad this series.
how can you be batting and posting at the same time vlad?
Im surprised Vlad hasn’t swung (i’m on gameday)
Just one more ground ball..you can do it Andy..
the 80/20 formula made me laugh.
Pettitte is a masta.
Take that Hunter!
Told you it works!! Andy has been toying with the Angel’s offensive.
That’s a bad play? Nope that was a fucking good play!
Sciosa for Manager of the Year
The pickoff. Legendary.
hunter just lit up the camera
I like you, but go sit down.
ahahaha screw you Toriiiiii.
Fist pumps for everyone!
Boy, Andy struggling a bit — a dumb time to be adventurous on the basepaths. Yet another uncharacteristically dumb play by the Halos
struggling? do you know they haven’t even had a runner on 2b yet?
my bad..aybar stole second..but struggling is too harsh..
They did, but just for one pitch, when Aybar stole second.
Andy no struggle, andy say sit the fuck down.
I meant his command — and I said “a bit” — but if this is the most he struggles, we’ll be fine
Fist pump every one…
You can’t walk Vlad, comon Andy.
yes he can.
C’mon Andy. FIST … AFTER you’re out the inning.
That is an achievement. I guess AP just figured he didn’t have to throw a strike to Vlad, I don;t blame him.
Swisher probably walks more in a week than Cano and Vlad walk all season COMBINED.
AP is the shit.
Oy, I thought that was trouble off the bat.
Yeah, then I realized Andy is pure Ice. They ain’t got shite on his steaze.
Got scared for a sec — I though off the bat it had distance. Whew…
I did too but an easy out. Andy needs to just worry about the batter.
top of the order, send weaver to the bench for good!
People still watch shows like So You Think You Can Dance? Really?
Get weaver to 100 pitches
that should be easy, he’s at 79
The only thing better than reaching your goals is exceeding them. If we get him to 101 i’ll be ecstatic.
Andy is toying with the crowd and the Angels, he’s destroying them on multiple levels.
We need to add another run in this or the next inning thou.
There you go. Nice and easy like that.
Let’s go. Make him throw strikes.
Some people believe that some pitchers “pitch to the score.” Maybe the Yankees are trying a new thing called “hitting to the score”?
Response from Johnny Damon: “STFU, Joe.”
Jeter hasn’t had a weak hit in a while.
Come on Johnny, just guess offspeed and you’ll be right.
You are a great prophet. Inshallah!
So easy a basement dwelling nerd can do it!!
Josef? They let you out? How is Australia?
Go Johnny Go.!!!
There you go! Finally, Damon! Let’s see if Tex catches on.
I don’t care how we get the runs, we just need them.
We. Don’t. Fuck. Around.
Alright Teixiera. You can challenge the distance on JD’s homer. Right???
This stadium is a joke. What a fucking bandbox.
lol, beat you to it.
Every stadium is a bandbox to the Yanks.
Johnny Damon says fuck you slump
johnny be goood!
Its a Johnny Rocket!
THE BRONX BOMBERS !!!!!
Johnny, meet postseason baseball.
He knows it quite well actually.
Portable Jet streams!!!!
Damon, zomg it’s only because it’s short to right field!!!!1111!!
oh, wait… we’re in Anaheim of Los Angeles. So much for that.
I think a walk was what Tex needed.
Listen Angels…these Yankees can fuck you whichever way they decide on given day..
Teixeira BB is a good development. I hope that means he’s seeing the ball better.
Does anyone know what the yankees BABIP is this series/postseason, just wondering if maybe the offense is luck.
Good shit Tex, if you can’t hit try to get a walk. A walk = single. It could be a good way to get out of the ditch.
Shut the fuck up about the World Series midget.
i swear , its like a jinx parade out there. i bet you FOX is gonna run the homerless streak stat another couple times this game.
Missed by that much.
Oh man! BOOOOOO
lol I thought he had that shit again!
oh..man..that would have been some shot..
Alex is locked in even though that didn’t carry.
I blame the camera man for that …
Fucker had me convinced that was gone.
Jesus, they’re putting some good swings on Weaver this inning, even on the outs.
oh mannn i got so fucking excited
Just got under it.
Damn, I thought he had another one. ARod is locked in.
Fuck though he had it.
Bad Kate, Bad Kate
Best get in the dug out and give him a handjob.
And then bring in the reliever (Goldie) when her wrist gets sore. He digs the older chicks with money.
FOX really loves them some Kate Hudson.
Wow, Weaver just got lucky there. Arod wanted to give everyone in the stands a heart attack.
We’ll settle for 95 pitches.
Fox doesn’t have a camera man in NY to show Yankee Stadium shot? Cheap bastards..
i thought the same thing….the other way around they’d be showin them waving those monkeys ….how cute
Johnny used up the portable jetstream that inning. Time to go in the locker room and get some more.
“I’m good, I’m good!”? More like, “I’m mediocre, I’m mediocre!”
Pettitte says sit the fuck down!
Over-anxious much Kendry?
I’m good! I’m good!
Nah man, you suck. Go take a shower.
I can’t believe that’s Pettitte’s first K…he’s throwing some filthy pitches at them. Lotsa weak contact instead of Ks, I suppose.
Weaver is done. Too bad, but that’s a good decision by Genius Scioscia.
Gamecast has never been so reliable. Gotta love the solo shots.
Oh shit he hit that hard.
Only one run, but kills our streak!
Dammit, Andy, you just had to break the streak.
I hate these manager interviews. Call the freaking game.
Why stop there? Why not have random drunken fan interviews? Interview the mascots. How about the beer vendors?
IT’S NEVER ENOUGH!
oh man. BOOO!!!!
Fireworks and a log plume ride for Howie Kendrick. How cute.
Oh fuck, comon Andy. Get it together.
He’s fine. Kendrick hit a pretty good pitch there.
Seriously? You need to calm down. It’s one run sandwiched between 2 strike outs. He’s good and together.
why so TENSO?
I HATE HOWIE FUCKING KENDRICK.
just so you know.
Obnoxious fireworks with all smoke afterwards…
Celebrate Angels, that is the closes your ever get.
no worries. no worries.
except for the friggin smoke on the field. damn that place gets cloudy.
that’s all they get.
Get the head out. That is baseball player speak.
Dude. You really are an ass.
Good pitch just happened to go for a hr.
Eh you can live with solo’s. Keep it goin andy.
Excellent. Napoli swingin at garbage.
So 2nd baseman are allowed to contribute this series… Someone please let Robbie know
Short memory I see..
Cano did have that RBI triple but he has been awful otherwise, especially with RISP, just like in the regular season.
Robbie has more errors than hits
A guy can go 1-20, that doesn’t negate the value of that “1.” That RBI triple was big time. You love you some Howie Kendrick for hitting “1.” Why not Robbie?
I think he had an RBI triple sometime in the past few days…
he is hitting 136 this series… shit no matter how you slice it
How’s Kendrick doing?
If I had to bet, I’d have bet on Coke allowing the first HR by Yankee pitching.
Yup, Can’t complain though.
No, Andy has been Dandy. (I feel dirty)
That was a fluke, no mas from the Andy.
And we get the fucking idea McCarver.
It’s ok. I’ll take one mistake from Andy tonight. I just hope the Yanks can continue to hit Weaver and get the opportunities to score. But I just hope it’s not going to be home run city tonight. That can end badly.
I sure hope all those runners Swisher and Melky let die don’t end up hurting
You’re kind of getting all Lanny on RAB.
I’m sorry but that PitchTrax thing is worthless without context. Is 82 crossing the plate good? Bad?
he doesnt fucking know….he’s Tim McCarver
It hasn’t mattered for 120 yrs, doesn’t matter now.. lol
Love to see Pettitte get through 6, then turn it over to the Hydra in the bullpen.
Is Aybar the most unlikeable Angel?
Figgins has patent to that phrase..
Why? I’ve always liked Aybar, postseason series aside in which I hate all the Angels.
Hes annoying in a nick punto kind of way, plus he looks kinda weird.
Plus, he has a great name. Most unlikeable Angel has to be Lackey.
McCarver: “Get the head out”
That’s what she said!!
we are good…we are good /Andy to Joe G
I think my landscaper is also Howie Long’s barber.
nice bounce back, lets go offense!
yes he is.
ok, so is Al a True Yankee(tm) yet?
wait fireworks for a homerun? It is fucking disneyland.
yes, yes it is.
See, when Andy gives up a solo shot, it’s an isolated fluke in the midst of very solid pitching. Weaver was getting hit hard all over the place and got lucky, which is why his solo shots were more representative.
Darren Oliver FT(Yanks)W
Next inning is the big inning in this game. If Andy gets through it, you are in Joba/Hughes/Mo territory if he gets into trouble.
Stared at one down the middle PO. Damn.
Jorge, that pitch was right down the middle. Don’t take that.
How is Darren Oliver doing so well this year? I don’t have stats in front of me, but I thought he was on that borderline of being a scrub and being a borderline bullpen pitcher.
Darren Oliver, whats he like 40? I could hit him.
He’s a man.
No you couldn’t.
He’s much bigger than me, I wouldn’t try to hit him. Unless it was with your dolphin flogging stick. That shit’s magic
aybar with those fundamentals again.
2nd basemen are allowed to contribute!!
There’s Cano…just needs to lead of the inning.
Good at setting the table, bad at cleaning up.
C’mon Swish, let’s get it going.
Cano tried the other side of the field and got lucky. Snap out of it …
Now he gets a hit. Clutch Cano.
I love your positive attitude.
Admiral Ackbar FTL.
Fuck You McCarver…
This is lame. I’m still at work. Missing the game yo!
I took a Mental Health half day. Lots of work after the game, though.
Mentions of 2004 ALCS: 1
More to come…
I think they got Cano there. Replay?
Guess not. Very close.
nope, hand got to the bag.
I think the Yanks need to score some runs off crap relievers.
TJSC send us a twitpic of the crowd at the stadium!!!
For some reason I feel like every time you make a switch hitter change sides mid game they get a hit. Especially a struggling one like Swish.
Damn Swish let’s get it going
Man, Swish is having a miserable game.
That was ugly, it’s okay Swish.
Nice swing Swish.
Swisher is lost out there..I never saw him strike out like this in regular season..
