    Nice post Mike, I was about to post that on the last thread, but it closed before I hit add.

  • Will

    Pettitte’s pitch count is at 45?

    • Handtius

      33

      • Joey

        You missed the joke. Try again

        • Handtius

          No, actually, I didn’t.

          • Joey

            My sarcasm detector is still in the shop, sorry

            • Handtius

              No problem. Bring it to Harold’s. Quick turn around.

  • Handtius

    A-rod. Double. callin it.

    • Handtius

      or a walk.

      • Handtius

        OK OK homerun.

      • Jersey

        Or an A-BOMB

      FAIL!
      heh

      • Handtius

        I’ll take it.

    • Joe D.

      A-Rod’s in Southern California, where we have In-N-Out, so he gave us the “double double”.

  • One Evil Empire

    LOL!

    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.

      Tough to watch when the stadium’s upside down, I bet.

        Rotate the pic.

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

          Your monitor is upside down.

          No, seriously, it’s fixed now.

          • Jersey

            You know what the problem was? I was standing on my head.

    • Joey

      UWS and pat?

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

        No. Pat’s not allowed within 100 feet of a woman due to the conditions of his parole.

        That’s Rebecca and I.

        • Joey

          lol. I keed, I keed

        • JMK aka The Overshare

          You’re missing a grit beard. Work on that during the off-season.

      Very belatedly…I love this comment.

  • mustang

    That’s never landing.

  • JMK aka The Overshare

    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.

  • Upstate Nick (confidence level = 10)

    A-Rod is in full-fledged beastmode.

  • Joe D.

    The Yanks already had the lead. What a stat-padding selfish bastard.

  • http://dinosaursneverexisted.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/melky.jpg Drew

    Al: Yo, we killin it.
    Jeter: Yeah.

  • count crapulent

    Alex Alex Alex

    The NY Times did an article on him today and why he’s so, I don’t know, good this year.

    • Joe D.

      News Flash to the Times: He’s always been good. Kinda why we got him.

  • ShuutoHeat

    Anyone else have a shrine at home worshipping Mo, G-ter and/or AROD? Because I do.

  • Stadium Garlic Fries

    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..

  • e mills

    I thought the Yankees weren’t going to be able to hit HRs in the postseason due the strength of other teams playoff pitching

    • count crapulent

      and no bandbox in Anaheim

  • count crapulent

    another cheapie homerun. those damn yankees.

  • Ivan

    Good God A-Rod, Good God.

  • ansky

    A-Rod’s been beating pitches like they stole something. Thanks again Kate Hudson!

  • Handtius

    Can A-rod and Jeter get Co-MVP?

    • RCK

      They’re certainly co-MVPs of my heart!

  • http://twitter.com/hopjake Jake H

    I love 12 pitches for the opposing pitcher and no outs.

  • Reggie C.

    If Pujols is looking for his elbow ligament , he should consider giving Alex a call.

    • Ivan

      A-Rod want his spot back!!!

  • http://dinosaursneverexisted.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/melky.jpg Drew
  • http://www.onedayonejob.com/ Willy

    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.

    • Stadium Garlic Fries

      me too..

  • Ivan

    After A-Rod hit that homer it’s official, Kate Hudson has the best pussy in the world.

    • ShuutoHeat

      G-ter agrees.

    • http://pinstripepalace.blogspot.com/ Brien Jackson

      MVP!

  • Stadium Garlic Fries

    Kate Hudson for Playoff MVP..

  • charelspoet

    I want whatever Kate Hudson is giving to ARod. I will be CEO by the end of the month.

  • Tom Zig

    Goal for this inning:

    Get Weaver to 75 pitches

    • ShuutoHeat

      Why settle for 75, when we can drive him out of the game this inning? You’re too soft on Weaver.

      • Tom Zig

        I’m being conservative here.

        Only thing better than reaching your goal?

        Exceeding it.

  • dkidd

    these at-bats are gorgeous

  • Mike

    so how about this anaheim crowd….who would know this was a playoff game

    • Keanu Reeves

      The rally monkey is still on set shooting a movie.

      They’ll liven up when he gets there.

    • dkidd

      the sound of one stick thundering

      /zen kaon’d

  • baravelli

    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.

    • slappy white

      Its the magic pussy MAAAAN

  • slappy white

    Damn Matsui wearing the concrete cleats ?

  • Joe D.

    Joe Buck: “Matsui doesn’t run like he used to…

    • Stadium Garlic Fries

      McCarver: When I say Cage I mean batting cage..

  • MikeD

    It’s the A-Rod and Captain show. Once the others join in more consistently, we’ll really be tough…or tougher!

    • count crapulent

      and andy andy pettitte

  • http://dinosaursneverexisted.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/melky.jpg Drew
  • Reggie C.

    c’mon Robbie. Repeat AB result.

    Stop digging pitches out the dirt.

  • charelspoet

    Cmon Swish, that 3rd run is important.

  • count crapulent

    Anyone at the Stadium? How are they reacting?

    • charelspoet

      No but it sounds like they are sucking on their thundersticks.

      • count crapulent

        There are no thundersticks at Yankee Stadium. We are not douches.

      • danny

        i think he means YS

  • Lance

    Wait a minute I’ve seen this inning somewhere before…

  • hal

    oh no …it’s cano

  • JMK aka The Overshare

    Robbie continuing his RISP fail. And hey, this looks familiar: 1st and 3rd with one out and Swisher up.

  • danny

    okay swisher, now lets try this again.

  • ansky

    Next AB, AROD tries to hit one out with a thunder stick…just for shits and giggles.

  • yankw

    come on guys you can score on an out

  • YankeeScribe

    Deja vu

  • Handtius

    Ah, they said Cano is an RBI man.

    • JMK aka The Overshare

      That’s pretty funny. They have how long to prepare for this series?

      • Handtius

        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.

  • Keanu Reeves

    I don’t want to see him let off the hook again. It’s time to get blood thirsty.

  • nrh24

    Anyone else hear Tim McCarver call Robbie Cano “an excellent RBI man”? In what universe has this man been living? Does he watch baseball?

    • ansky

      maybe he was talking about RBI Baseball. CC is really good at that too.

    • Keanu Reeves

      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.

  • http://twitter.com/hopjake Jake H

    we need a hit badly here.

    • http://dinosaursneverexisted.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/melky.jpg Drew

      not really. A Sac would do just fine.

    • Brazilian Yankee

      0 for the last 17 with RISP

  • Dave

    At least the pitch count is going up up up

  • yankw

    come on shit guys thats twice

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Swisher and Cano are just terrible.

  • http://dinosaursneverexisted.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/melky.jpg Drew

    Swisher that’s twice man. Get the fucking run in.

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

    Swish looked overmatched in that AB.

  • http://twitter.com/hopjake Jake H

    He threw no strikes to swisher but the 1st one.

  • ansky

    crap.

  • Jordan

    Ugh. 8 LOB between Swisher and Cano. 2 for Melky (hoping that changes this AB) and 0 combined for everyone else.

  • Stadium Garlic Fries

    unbelivable..this team is supposed to best offense in ML..how the hell they can’t get runner in from 3rd ?

  • charelspoet

    Seriously? A fly ball? How difficult?

  • JMK aka The Overshare

    Ahh man. I’ll give him credit, that was a great pitch but Swisher and Cano have been black holes this playoffs.

    • count crapulent

      and Tex and Damon…we can’t afford all these blackholes.

  • pat

    Fucking Weaver is walking a thin line. He’ll get his.

  • http://dinosaursneverexisted.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/melky.jpg Drew

    Aight Melk. I know you got it this time.

  • dkidd

    come on leche

    two out dagger

  • Ivan

    Fuck yo, Weaver is just throwing off speed pitches.

  • Dave

    he would have walked in a run if they just didnt swing the damn bat

  • ansky

    wasted opportunities suck

  • charelspoet

    6 straight outs by these three. Ugh!

  • Keanu Reeves

    Um…correct me if I’m wrong, anatomically speaking, but isn’t that just extra skin on the elbow?

    • pat

      A fiveskin?

      • JMK aka The Overshare

        There was Darfur, so what’s the new one? What’s Darfive?

  • danny

    lmaoo “whatevers in there”

  • http://dinosaursneverexisted.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/melky.jpg Drew

    hehe I love Melky

  • Reggie C.

    This is very disappointing. That’s twice this situation has played out. Thankfully Arod got his AWESOME on early.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    0 for the last 18 with RISP. That’s just not good enough.

  • trueblue

    Fuck You Swisher
    Fuck You Melky

    You two and Cano should go apologize to Andy for continually fucking up

    • http://dinosaursneverexisted.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/melky.jpg Drew

      ::gives trublue a rally monkey to hug::

      • trueblue

        i need something this should be a 5 run game

    • Brazilian Yankee

      Swisher didn’t even need to get a hit, just a deep enough flyout.

      Playoff pitching >>>>> Swisher

      • http://dinosaursneverexisted.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/melky.jpg Drew

        Patience young grasshoppa

      • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

        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.

  • yankw

    shit this offense is cold as ice Jeter Arod and seven guys not doing shit

  • danny

    bad.

  • chriskeo

    Weaver is at 79 pitches.

  • JMK aka The Overshare

    I feel like we’re losing even though we’re up by 2. I’d bet we all feel that way.

    • Handtius

      Nope. we have 2 runs they have non. That means we’re winning. Yes, it’s frustrating, but we are still winning.

      • JMK aka The Overshare

        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.

    • Jackson

      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.

  • http://twitter.com/hopjake Jake H

    Weaver has thrown maybe 5 offspeed pitches in the zone and the Yanks have swung at 30 that are out of the zone.

  • JackC

    I don’t care how great any two players are, you can’t depend on just two hitters…

  • EB

    0-6 risp… after 0-8 in game 2

    • SteveD Fla

      they are killing me. We should have 5 runs by now. Lets hope Andy can keep pitching his ass off.

  • Mike

    comeeee onnnnn.

  • Jersey

    Well. That was unfortunate.

  • http://dinosaursneverexisted.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/melky.jpg Drew

    Damn man.

    Cano, Swish and Melk, same result.

  • charelspoet

    12 men left on base between those three – 0-6 as a team.

    Cmon Andy, pick up the scared children sucking air today.

  • Jackson

    Oh well, now Andy can just put the crowd back in that catatonic state they were in before those last few outs.

  • Ivan

    The Yanks should be getting a couple runs off Weaver rite now. Oh Well, Yanks still lead.

  • Reggie C.

    Damn fine ass commercial.

    We should be ahead by more. Cano and Swisher are keeping it close.

    • hal

      don’t forget Melky

  • Mike Pop

    Hopefully these stranded runners won’t come back to hurt us.

    :knows they won’t:

    ;)

  • baravelli

    Geez, everybody, chill out. Weaver made some good pitches there. Yes it was disappointing, but we’re winning this game.

    • Handtius

      this.

  • Reggie C.

    How badly does Joe Buck want the Angels to score some runs.

    • Tom Zig

      Eric Karabell and Peter Pascarelli want the Angels to win.

    • ShuutoHeat

      LOL that old lady was full of win.

  • count crapulent

    I’d like to see them run away with it at this point. I’ve had enough damn heart attacks this playoff season.

  • YankeeScribe

    Is Weaver that good or is everybody but Jeter, A-Rod, JoPo, and Matsui that bad today?

    • Tom Zig

      Damon, Tex, Cano, Swisher, and Melky are all slumping

  • Tank the Frank

    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.

  • JMK aka The Overshare

    Maybe Kevin Long has been hitting the sauce since Game 2 of the ALDS.

  • pat

    HOLY CRAP HE COULD STEAL HOME…. FROM THIRD!!!!!!!

    • ShuutoHeat

      NO WAY!

    • slappy white

      another great commet from Big Tim

    • Brazilian Yankee

      Elsbury steals home from second, sometimes even from first base. He’s just that awesome.

      • count crapulent

        sometimes he steals home from home

  • Joe R

    Amazing that we’ve yet to lose in the playoffs and are having the toughest time hitting with RISP

  • http://dinosaursneverexisted.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/melky.jpg Drew

    That old lady thought she was tupac

    • JMK aka The Overshare

      It’s a Makavelli/Axl sighting.

  • TJ

    What was that?

  • baravelli

    Hall of Famer Rod Carew (he converted!)

    • pat

      +1

  • Brazilian Yankee

    I think Damon has been playing a very solid LF during the playoffs.

  • Jersey

    Weaver’s at 79 pitches after four. The rate he’s going, he’s not gonna be in there by the 6th.

  • Stadium Garlic Fries

    they get excited for loud fly outs? Really?

  • http://dinosaursneverexisted.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/melky.jpg Drew

    No he didn’t, did he swing? Yes he did.

    Abreu has made 4 outs this series that were liners right at Johnny.

  • pat

    Heh, I like that Inside, outside, outside, thats behind us.

  • Dave

    That tightened the ol’ sphincter

  • dkidd

    ground ball andy

    You got this, Andrew.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Andy has lost command this inning.

  • Hugh Jassman

    Man, Bobby is some kind of bad this series.

    • dkidd

      how can you be batting and posting at the same time vlad?

  • Tom Zig

    Im surprised Vlad hasn’t swung (i’m on gameday)

  • Stadium Garlic Fries

    Just one more ground ball..you can do it Andy..

  • Reggie C.

    the 80/20 formula made me laugh.

    Pettitte is a masta.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Take that Hunter!

  • Stadium Garlic Fries

    hahaha…

  • ShuutoHeat

    Told you it works!! Andy has been toying with the Angel’s offensive.

  • http://dinosaursneverexisted.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/melky.jpg Drew

    That’s a bad play? Nope that was a fucking good play!

    ahahaha screw you Toriiiiii.

  • Joe D.

    Fundamentals, baby.

  • ShuutoHeat

    Fist pumps for everyone!

  • Ivan

    Ha FAIL.

  • JackC

    Boy, Andy struggling a bit — a dumb time to be adventurous on the basepaths. Yet another uncharacteristically dumb play by the Halos

    • Stadium Garlic Fries

      struggling? do you know they haven’t even had a runner on 2b yet?

      • Stadium Garlic Fries

        my bad..aybar stole second..but struggling is too harsh..

      • baravelli

        They did, but just for one pitch, when Aybar stole second.

    • Handtius

      Andy no struggle, andy say sit the fuck down.

      • JackC

        I meant his command — and I said “a bit” — but if this is the most he struggles, we’ll be fine

  • Stadium Garlic Fries

    Fist pump every one…

  • Brazilian Yankee

    You can’t walk Vlad, comon Andy.

    • Handtius

      yes he can.

  • Reggie C.

    C’mon Andy. FIST … AFTER you’re out the inning.

  • http://dinosaursneverexisted.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/melky.jpg Drew

    That is an achievement. I guess AP just figured he didn’t have to throw a strike to Vlad, I don;t blame him.

  • JMK aka The Overshare

    Swisher probably walks more in a week than Cano and Vlad walk all season COMBINED.

  • http://dinosaursneverexisted.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/melky.jpg Drew

    AP is the shit.

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

    Oy, I thought that was trouble off the bat.

    • Handtius

      Yeah, then I realized Andy is pure Ice. They ain’t got shite on his steaze.

  • JackC

    Got scared for a sec — I though off the bat it had distance. Whew…

    • http://twitter.com/hopjake Jake H

      I did too but an easy out. Andy needs to just worry about the batter.

  • danny

    top of the order, send weaver to the bench for good!

  • JMK aka The Overshare

    People still watch shows like So You Think You Can Dance? Really?

  • Tom Zig

    Goal for this inning:

    Get weaver to 100 pitches

    • chriskeo

      that should be easy, he’s at 79

      • Tom Zig

        I repeat:

        The only thing better than reaching your goals is exceeding them. If we get him to 101 i’ll be ecstatic.

  • ShuutoHeat

    Andy is toying with the crowd and the Angels, he’s destroying them on multiple levels.

  • http://twitter.com/hopjake Jake H

    We need to add another run in this or the next inning thou.

    • Handtius

      There you go. Nice and easy like that.

  • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

    Let’s go. Make him throw strikes.

  • Joe D.

    Some people believe that some pitchers “pitch to the score.” Maybe the Yankees are trying a new thing called “hitting to the score”?

    • Joe D.

      Response from Johnny Damon: “STFU, Joe.”

  • JMK aka The Overshare

    Jeter hasn’t had a weak hit in a while.

  • pat

    Come on Johnny, just guess offspeed and you’ll be right.

    • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

      Yup.

    • JMK aka The Overshare

      You are a great prophet. Inshallah!

    I don’t care how we get the runs, we just need them.

  • http://dinosaursneverexisted.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/melky.jpg Drew

    We. Don’t. Fuck. Around.

  • Reggie C.

    Alright Teixiera. You can challenge the distance on JD’s homer. Right???

  • UWS

    This stadium is a joke. What a fucking bandbox.

    Wait, what?

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

      lol, beat you to it.

    • Handtius

      Every stadium is a bandbox to the Yanks.

  • Ivan

    HEEERRRE JOHNNY!!!!

  • Tom Zig

    Johnny Damon says fuck you slump

  • danny

  • AdamParker

    Its a Johnny Rocket!

  • mustang

    THE BRONX BOMBERS !!!!!

  • Dave

    Johnny, meet postseason baseball.

    • http://dinosaursneverexisted.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/melky.jpg Drew

      He knows it quite well actually.

  • pat

    Portable Jet streams!!!!

  • Upstate Nick (confidence level = 10)

    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.

  • Mike Pop

    Again, Alex?

  • http://twitter.com/hopjake Jake H

    I think a walk was what Tex needed.

  • Stadium Garlic Fries

    Listen Angels…these Yankees can fuck you whichever way they decide on given day..

  • Reggie C.

    Teixeira BB is a good development. I hope that means he’s seeing the ball better.

  • chriskeo

    Does anyone know what the yankees BABIP is this series/postseason, just wondering if maybe the offense is luck.

  • ShuutoHeat

    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.

  • pat

    Shut the fuck up about the World Series midget.

    • Reggie C.

      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.

  • Handtius

    So close!!!!!

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

    Missed by that much.

  • http://dinosaursneverexisted.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/melky.jpg Drew

    Oh man! BOOOOOO

    lol I thought he had that shit again!

  • Stadium Garlic Fries

    oh..man..that would have been some shot..

  • JMK aka The Overshare

    Alex is locked in even though that didn’t carry.

  • Reggie C.

    I blame the camera man for that …

    Fucker had me convinced that was gone.

  • Jersey

    Jesus, they’re putting some good swings on Weaver this inning, even on the outs.

  • danny

    oh mannn i got so fucking excited

  • http://twitter.com/hopjake Jake H

    Just got under it.

  • Jackson

    Damn, I thought he had another one. ARod is locked in.

  • mustang

    Fuck though he had it.

    Bad Kate, Bad Kate

    • Handtius

      Best get in the dug out and give him a handjob.

      • JMK aka The Overshare

        And then bring in the reliever (Goldie) when her wrist gets sore. He digs the older chicks with money.

  • http://dinosaursneverexisted.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/melky.jpg Drew

    FOX really loves them some Kate Hudson.

  • ShuutoHeat

    Wow, Weaver just got lucky there. Arod wanted to give everyone in the stands a heart attack.

  • chriskeo

    We’ll settle for 95 pitches.

  • Stadium Garlic Fries

    Fox doesn’t have a camera man in NY to show Yankee Stadium shot? Cheap bastards..

    • slappy white

      i thought the same thing….the other way around they’d be showin them waving those monkeys ….how cute

  • count crapulent

    Johnny used up the portable jetstream that inning. Time to go in the locker room and get some more.

  • JMK aka The Overshare

    “I’m good, I’m good!”? More like, “I’m mediocre, I’m mediocre!”

  • Handtius

    Pettitte says sit the fuck down!

  • Reggie C.

    Over-anxious much Kendry?

  • http://dinosaursneverexisted.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/melky.jpg Drew

    I’m good! I’m good!

    Nah man, you suck. Go take a shower.

  • Joe D.

    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.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Weaver is done. Too bad, but that’s a good decision by Genius Scioscia.

  • http://www.blueseatblogs.com Dave

    Gamecast has never been so reliable. Gotta love the solo shots.

  • JMK aka The Overshare

    Oh shit he hit that hard.

  • Handtius

    aw damn.

  • Dave

    Fack

  • Mike Pop

    Only one run, but kills our streak!

  • http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v21/riddering/Baseball/reachforthestaaaaars.jpg Riddering

    Dammit, Andy, you just had to break the streak.

  • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

    I hate these manager interviews. Call the freaking game.

    • JMK aka The Overshare

      Why stop there? Why not have random drunken fan interviews? Interview the mascots. How about the beer vendors?

      IT’S NEVER ENOUGH!

  • http://dinosaursneverexisted.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/melky.jpg Drew

    oh man. BOOO!!!!

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

    Fireworks and a log plume ride for Howie Kendrick. How cute.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Oh fuck, comon Andy. Get it together.

    • Joe D.

      He’s fine. Kendrick hit a pretty good pitch there.

    • Handtius

      Seriously? You need to calm down. It’s one run sandwiched between 2 strike outs. He’s good and together.

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

      why so TENSO?

  • danny

    I HATE HOWIE FUCKING KENDRICK.

    just so you know.

  • ShuutoHeat

    Obnoxious fireworks with all smoke afterwards…

  • Ivan

    Celebrate Angels, that is the closes your ever get.

  • Reggie C.

    no worries. no worries.

    except for the friggin smoke on the field. damn that place gets cloudy.

  • Handtius

    that’s all they get.

  • http://dinosaursneverexisted.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/melky.jpg Drew

    Get the head out. That is baseball player speak.

    Dude. You really are an ass.

  • http://twitter.com/hopjake Jake H

    Good pitch just happened to go for a hr.

  • pat

    Eh you can live with solo’s. Keep it goin andy.

    • pat

      Excellent. Napoli swingin at garbage.

  • trueblue

    So 2nd baseman are allowed to contribute this series… Someone please let Robbie know

    • http://dinosaursneverexisted.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/melky.jpg Drew

      Short memory I see..

      • Brazilian Yankee

        Cano did have that RBI triple but he has been awful otherwise, especially with RISP, just like in the regular season.

      • trueblue

        ??????

        Robbie has more errors than hits

        • http://dinosaursneverexisted.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/melky.jpg Drew

          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?

    • Handtius

      I think he had an RBI triple sometime in the past few days…

      • trueblue

        he is hitting 136 this series… shit no matter how you slice it

        • Handtius

          How’s Kendrick doing?

  • Brazilian Yankee

    If I had to bet, I’d have bet on Coke allowing the first HR by Yankee pitching.

    • JSquared

      Yup, Can’t complain though.

      • Brazilian Yankee

        No, Andy has been Dandy. (I feel dirty)

        • JSquared

          hah

        • JSquared

          hah

  • ShuutoHeat

    That was a fluke, no mas from the Andy.

    And we get the fucking idea McCarver.

  • AJ

    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.

  • trueblue

    I sure hope all those runners Swisher and Melky let die don’t end up hurting

    • Handtius

      You’re kind of getting all Lanny on RAB.

  • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

    I’m sorry but that PitchTrax thing is worthless without context. Is 82 crossing the plate good? Bad?

    • slappy white

      he doesnt fucking know….he’s Tim McCarver

    • http://dinosaursneverexisted.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/melky.jpg Drew

      It hasn’t mattered for 120 yrs, doesn’t matter now.. lol

  • Jersey

    Love to see Pettitte get through 6, then turn it over to the Hydra in the bullpen.

  • Dave

    Is Aybar the most unlikeable Angel?

    • Stadium Garlic Fries

      Figgins has patent to that phrase..

      • Brazilian Yankee

        Howie Kendrick

    • http://dinosaursneverexisted.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/melky.jpg Drew

      Why? I’ve always liked Aybar, postseason series aside in which I hate all the Angels.

      • Dave

        Hes annoying in a nick punto kind of way, plus he looks kinda weird.

      • JMK aka The Overshare

        Plus, he has a great name. Most unlikeable Angel has to be Lackey.

  • Joe D.

    McCarver: “Get the head out”

    That’s what she said!!

  • Stadium Garlic Fries

    we are good…we are good /Andy to Joe G

  • JMK aka The Overshare

    I think my landscaper is also Howie Long’s barber.

  • danny

    nice bounce back, lets go offense!

  • marc resnick

    yes he is.

  • tim randle

    ok, so is Al a True Yankee(tm) yet?

  • count crapulent

    wait fireworks for a homerun? It is fucking disneyland.

    • Handtius

      yes, yes it is.

  • baravelli

    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.

  • Joey

    Darren Oliver FT(Yanks)W

  • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

    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.

  • Reggie C.

    Stared at one down the middle PO. Damn.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Jorge, that pitch was right down the middle. Don’t take that.

  • AJ

    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.

  • pat

    Darren Oliver, whats he like 40? I could hit him.

    • http://dinosaursneverexisted.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/melky.jpg Drew

      He’s a man.

    • Handtius

      No you couldn’t.

    • Joey

      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

  • Mike bk

    aybar with those fundamentals again.

  • http://dinosaursneverexisted.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/melky.jpg Drew

    2nd basemen are allowed to contribute!!

    /trueblue’d

  • Handtius

    There’s Cano…just needs to lead of the inning.

    • ShuutoHeat

      Good at setting the table, bad at cleaning up.

  • Mike Pop

    C’mon Swish, let’s get it going.

  • Reggie C.

    Cano tried the other side of the field and got lucky. Snap out of it …

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Now he gets a hit. Clutch Cano.

    • Handtius

      I love your positive attitude.

  • JMK aka The Overshare

    Admiral Ackbar FTL.

  • Stadium Garlic Fries

    Fuck You McCarver…

  • Hugh Jassman

    This is lame. I’m still at work. Missing the game yo!

    • JMK aka The Overshare

      I took a Mental Health half day. Lots of work after the game, though.

  • TJ

    Mentions of 2004 ALCS: 1

    More to come…

  • JMK aka The Overshare

    I think they got Cano there. Replay?

    • JMK aka The Overshare

      Guess not. Very close.

    • ShuutoHeat

      nope, hand got to the bag.

  • Russell NY

    I think the Yanks need to score some runs off crap relievers.

  • tim randle

    TJSC send us a twitpic of the crowd at the stadium!!!

  • pat

    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.

    • pat

      DENIED!

  • TJ

    Damn Swish let’s get it going

  • Jersey

    Man, Swish is having a miserable game.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Swisha sucks.

  • ShuutoHeat

    That was ugly, it’s okay Swish.

  • Reggie C.

    Nice swing Swish.

  • Stadium Garlic Fries

    Swisher is lost out there..I never saw him strike out like this in regular season..

  • yankw

    offense aaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrggggggggggg
