ALCS Game Three: Yankees @ Angels

By

2009 ALCSThus far, the ALCS is playing out much like the ALDS did for the Yankees. They took Game One against the Angels thanks to a strong effort from CC Sabathia and a workmanlike effort from the offense, just like they did against the Twins in the ALDS. And again just like the ALDS, Alex Rodriguez hit a ginormous, megaclutch game-tying home run off the other team’s closer in Game Two before the Yankees went on to win in walk-off fashion. Game Three of the ALDS featured a sterling pitching effort from Andy Pettitte and another big A-Rod homer before they tacked on some runs. How will Game Three of the ALCS play out?

Disgraced ex-Yankee Carl Pavano started the third game of the ALDS for the Twins, and while Halos’ Game Three starter Jered Weaver can’t make that claim, his brother Jeff sure can. The Bombers have traditionally had their way with the younger Weaver brother, tagging him for a 5.59 ERA and a 5.94 FIP in three starts, including a pair of beat downs this season (9 runs in 13.1 IP). Weaver does have a considerable home-road split though, so keep that in mind.

The Angels had their way with Andy Pettitte last month, but that was Pettitte’s first outing back from his one-start hiatus due to a tired shoulder. I’m not sure if it’s worth noting that Pettitte’s 4.70 career ERA (3.84 FIP) against the Angels is the highest among any team he’s started against at least three times. After all, why should what happened in the late-90′s/early-2000′s be relevant now?

Here’s the starting ni … er, eighteen.

Yankees
Derek Jeter, SS
Johnny Damon, LF
Mark Teixeira, 1B
Alex Rodriguez, 3B
Hideki Matsui, DH
Jorge Posada, C
Robinson Cano, 2B
Nick Swisher, RF
Melky Cabrera, CF

Andy Pettitte (14-8, 4.16)

Angels
Chone Figgins, 3B
Bobby Abreu, RF
Torii Hunter, CF
Vladimir Guerrero, DH
Juan Rivera, LF
Kendry Morales, 1B
Howie Kendrick, 2B
Mike Napoli, C
Erick Aybar, SS

Jered Weaver (16-8, 3.75)

The weather is absolutely gorgeous in Orange County, so for once we won’t be wondering if/when the rain will come.  It’s an unusual 4:13pm ET start time, but that’s what MLB gets for letting the networks dictate its postseason schedule. The unparalleled Joe Buck and Tim McCarver have the call on FOX. Enjoy the game.

    “We Play Today, We Win Today” Go Yankees!!!

  2. Tom Zig says:

    Glad to see Big bad Vlad is in the cleanup spot.

  3. Andy in Sunny Daytona says:

    No Ninjano. :(

  4. Mike Axisa says:

    Daaaaaaaamn, the line at the Stadium is around the block. They just showed it on YES.

  5. andrew says:

    Does anyone know why Cano and Swish are sometimes flip flopped? I haven’t paid much attention to whether or not it has to do with righy/lefty matchups or if its just whoever Girardi feels like going with.

  6. Salty Buggah says:

    I really hope A-rod builds on his line of .333/.474/1.133/1.601 against Weaver today.

  7. Dela G says:

    lets go yanks!!!

    BEAT LA!!

    A fun read until gametime:

    Been having trouble doing href’s, so you may have to use copy and paste to get there.

  9. Jake H says:

    Work sent me home because of a mix up in schedule. I get to watch the game, I’m pumped. I now have my Yankee shirt on that has been worn for every playoff game. We are winning this now.

  10. Comrade Samsonov says:

    anyone watching the game at work from justin.tv?

  11. Sam P. says:

    SlingBox baby! Glad I can watch from the office.

    • Mike Axisa says:

      Hey guys (you and the Comrade), please don’t post any links to any unauthorized internet broadcasts. We could get in serious trouble.

      Thanks.

      Number 3.

      • Rose says:

        Mike,

        Is it just “links” or can you not talk about certain things all together?

        • Mike Axisa says:

          We’d prefer if you didn’t talk about unauthorized broadcasts. Links are an absolute no-no.

          • Sam P. says:

            I’m sorry Mike, I didn’t realize I was stepping on any toes. I actually bought the product and it only allows me to connect to it since it gives one connection. Feel free to delete the post if need be.

            Sam

      • Joey says:

        Is Slingbox an unauthorized rebroadcast? I thought it was legal, you connect it to your TV and watch it on the computer. Just wondering, I’m skipping class to be in front of my TV lol

      • Jackson says:

        I don’t think Slingbox is an unauthorized broadcast. It’s something you purchase that you can hook up to your home cable box that then sends the signal to your computer or phone. It’s pretty awesome actually.

  12. Andy in Sunny Daytona says:

    I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I miss Jeannie Zelasko.

  13. Rose says:

    Solid Andy on the mound…I dig it. I never worry about the regulars. It’s the other guys I used to worry about…but we seem to find a way to win any way we can this year…and I dig that the most!

  14. Tampa Yankee says:

    Apparently the Yankees can’t do anything to prevent the Angels from coming back/winning…

    http://msn.foxsports.com/mlb/s.....in-the-sun

    The biggest error, however, would be if the Angels start to panic.

    It would be if they start trying to juggle what has been a winning formula.

    They just need to get back to being the Angels.

    That will be more than enough to make them champions.

    Personally, I can not take a guy who poses for his picture with a F’n cowboy hat on.

  15. JobaWockeeZ says:

    Fuck you Fox. Really just shut the fuck up.

  16. Go Yankssssss says:

    stuck at school wathcing the game on gameday!!!! this sucks!!!

  17. ShuutoHeat says:

    Alright! Let’s rip Weaver and the Angels a new one!

  18. Mike Pop says:

    Let’s go Yanks!

  19. ShuutoHeat says:

    No shit, capt’n obvious Joe Buck.

  20. Drew says:

    Awww, Gramps Mccarver isn’t all bundled up! He’s so happy.

  21. ansky says:

    does anyone care about Joe Buck’s opinion?

    • SamVa says:

      I feel like the answer to that is obvious-
      yes… people who don’t know you have to score runs to win games probably are sitting at home exclaiming “wow, this guy is great! I didn’t know that was how scoring worked.”

  22. Andy in Sunny Daytona says:

    Why is Joe Buck even spouting “his opinion”?

  23. ShuutoHeat says:

    Wow, did McCarver just give credit to the Yankees not letting the Angels play well?! HOLY MOLY!

    • ansky says:

      I thought I heard something like that…couldn’t believe it…figured it may have been some error in my HD tv.

  24. Dela G says:

    let go yankees!

  25. Mike Axisa says:

    Thundersticks make you a real fan.

    • UWS says:

      The person who invented thunderstix should be taken out into CF and summarily executed during the 7th inning stretch. Preferably by being beaten to death with aforementioned thunderstix.

  26. ansky says:

    Thunder sticks are terrible. what, do they not want to hurt their hands clapping? weak.

  27. Drew says:

    This is such a strange time for a ballgame but I ain’t complainin!

  28. Jackson says:

    I would be embarrassed if Yankees fans used thunder sticks.

  29. UWS says:

    How much does it suck that today is a gorgeous day in New York and the weekend was so miserable?

  30. Reggie C. says:

    This game is brought to you by Ninja Assassin.

    I smile.

  31. SamVa says:

    “Weaver has been lethal against righties”
    WEAVER TO THE PEN

  32. Drew says:

    Robbie Cano + Teix + Warm weather = Goodness.

  33. Dela G says:

    derek jeter is god

  34. Drew says:

    HAHAH!! WE DONT FUCK AROUND SON!

  35. Doug says:

    Perfect start!

  36. ansky says:

    SET.THE.TONE.

  37. JobaWockeeZ says:

    JETER!!! THE BANDBOX!

  38. Handtius says:

    FUCK YEAH!!!!!

  39. Jackson says:

    Well then.

  40. Andy in Sunny Daytona says:

    There goes Joe Buck’s opinions.

  41. Riddering says:

    I’m getting out of work early (5) and will be home around six. So…I’ll only miss most of the game. Yesssss.

    Go Andy! Do us proud.

  42. Mike Axisa says:

    Pffft, and they thought they had a chance.

  43. ShuutoHeat says:

    That’s G BITCH!@!!

  44. Joey says:

    Cap’n Money!

  45. Reggie C. says:

    DEREK JETER.

    OH CAPTAIN MY CAPTAIN!

  46. Gorman's Ear Guards says:

    oh captain my captain

  47. Keanu Reeves says:

    HOW FUCKING COOL IS DEREK JETER?!

  48. Ivan says:

    Derek JETA!!!!!

  49. YankFan says:

    Yeah, that was quick.

  50. mustang says:

    Wow !!!

  51. Dela G says:

    johnny damon with the wave….

  52. Joey says:

    Don’t let Weaver get outta the first. Kuroda him (except worse)

  53. Reggie C. says:

    Don’t run back to the bench JD. C’mon man.

  54. Drew says:

    Scott Boras behind the plate makes me smile. Good things usually happen.

  55. Reggie C. says:

    Teixeira has a good rip on a hanging curve. Could’ve done more with that.

  56. ansky says:

    At least Tex got it out of the infield this time.

  57. Moshe Mandel says:

    The curveball looks really good. Homer notwithstanding, if he locates that, he will be tough.

  58. ShuutoHeat says:

    LOL Joe G with his move!

  59. Mike Axisa says:

    What they hell was Girardi doing in the dugout?

  60. Jake H says:

    WTF did Girardi do in the dugout there?

  61. Sleepy Carl says:

    What was that move by Girardi?

  62. Handtius says:

    A-rod is saving his homerun for the 7-9th innings.

  63. ansky says:

    did Girardi just bowl in the dugout?? what was that?

  64. Ivan says:

    Lets go Pettitte.

  65. Drew says:

    lol at Girardi.

  66. ShuutoHeat says:

    Okay so who else has seen a move like that by any other managers in the league?

  67. Dave says:

    Need help. Still at work, is CBS radio streaming this? ESPN radio? Someone radio? HELP!

  68. pat says:

    I turn on the tv and Derk Jeter is burying 0-2 pitches in the LF seats. Que Bueno

  69. Handtius says:

    You want to watch Joe Buck get his ass handed to him, watch this when you have a chance:

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/.....16163.html

  70. Dela G says:

    damn, that’s not the start i wanted to see for the angels

  71. Keanu Reeves says:

    My roommate just told me he needs to vacuum. I was curious as to why, and was about to tell him to STFU, the Yanks are on…then he opens his closet for me to see shattered glass, “I broke my bong”.

    WTF.

  72. Dela G says:

    can we throw to bobby A now?

  73. Moshe Mandel says:

    Throw the ball, Andy. Don’t become too focused on the runner.

  74. UWS says:

    WTF, Andy. Just throw the effing pitch!

  75. ansky says:

    Great…3 hrs of hearing McCarver call Andy’s excellent pick-off move a balk.

  76. Mike Axisa says:

    Just pitch to the hitter please. Bobby will probably GIDP anyway.

  77. Drew says:

    Is it windy there? that shit looked like it fooled Teix up in the ai.

  78. Dela G says:

    throw a pitch plz

  79. e mills says:

    I’m liking the pickoff attempts

    • Jackson says:

      Me too, the batter is just as likely to lose focus and get impatient as the fans are. I don’t suspect a veteran like Pettitte is so worried about a runner that he’ll lose focus on the batter and make a bad pitch.

  80. Dela G says:

    DOUBLE PLAY!

  81. Handtius says:

    That’s some shite…that’s why you throw over 6 times!

  82. Mike Axisa says:

    See what happens when you pitch to the batter, Andy? Amazing, isn’t it?

  83. Doug says:

    Beloved Korean popstar Rain is the Ninja Assassin.

    I simply can’t get over this.

  84. baravelli says:

    See?! That’s why you throw to first so many times! Don’t doubt the pickoff move!

  85. ShuutoHeat says:

    BANG BANG play punks!!!

    Andy’s numerous throws to first is a tactic/strategy that screws with the hitters at the plate. IT MUST BE.

  86. Reggie C. says:

    Swords, stars, and scythes oh my!

    ninja assassin looks like a ton of fun.

  87. Andy in Sunny Daytona says:

    “Ninja Assassin – The Robinson Cano Story”

  88. Moshe Mandel says:

    7 pitches. He will be at 51 in the 7th and will get pulled for Joba……

  89. Ivan says:

    Solid inning Pettitte.

  90. ansky says:

    I hate these John Hancock commercials…maybe these tools wouldnt have to worry about retirement if they’d stop dicking around on the laptop and got back to work!

    • Dela G says:

      haha IETC

    • Handtius says:

      they’re retired already.

    • pat says:

      Wait, your work day doesn’t entail sitting on a park bench texting your wife gossip about the neighbors?

      • JMK aka The Overshare says:

        Like those infomercials with what is essentially a baby monitor for spying on the neighbors? The infomercial starts out with an old couple watching TV. Seen it? It’s great.

    • JMK aka The Overshare says:

      Even beyond that, the only people in their 50s that use one letter to replace words (“b”, “r”, “u”) are unemployed, and with good reason.

  91. Jordan says:

    Wouldn’t it be great to have one of those recurring team options on Andy like the Sox have on Wakefield?

  92. Drew says:

    He will get too cute with that 66 mph roller. As I type this Dek just missed one.

  93. baravelli says:

    I’m confident in Pettitte to be able to throw to first however many times he wants and not get distracted or lose focus when he throws a pitch. He’s done it so many times, it doesn’t phase him at all. It does, on the other hand, infuriate the other team, keep the runner close so that the double play is in order, and detract from the hitter’s timing. I love it.

  94. Stadium Garlic Fries says:

    Made it to home in time for Andy’s double play.

  95. ansky says:

    i love Weaver’s breaking ball today.

  96. Reggie C. says:

    ripped …

    Good job Mats.

  97. Dela G says:

    hit-deki!

  98. Handtius says:

    Asian flava.

  99. Moshe Mandel says:

    He has little confidence in throwing the heater for strikes. They are going to see the curve all day.

  100. Andy in Sunny Daytona says:

    Didn’t Varitek catch up a little this yea……..Whoopsie.

  101. Dela G says:

    lol the home plate umpire is an idiot

  102. ShuutoHeat says:

    Lol, he faked everyone out!

  103. Drew says:

    They can sit on the roller and still catch up to that weak heater.

    Good one Buck, and ump.

  104. Andy in Sunny Daytona says:

    Bill Miller a little over anxious.

  105. Handtius says:

    Good umpiring again.

  106. JMK aka The Overshare says:

    The Angels are so good they strike guys out on two strikes.

  107. ansky says:

    wishful thinking by the ump? early strikeout call?

  108. Stadium Garlic Fries says:

    umpire also under playoff pressure?

  109. Dela G says:

    attaboy jopo

    get that fuckin walk you deserve my brotha

  110. Drew says:

    haha Pat Sajak is in Boras’s box.

  111. ShuutoHeat says:

    Hey isn’t that Pay Sajak in the netted area behind the plate?!

  112. Mike Axisa says:

    Weaver can’t throw his fastball for a strike to save his life.

  113. Stadium Garlic Fries says:

    is there a pair of slower base runner out in MLB than Hideki and JoPo?

  114. Andy in Sunny Daytona says:

    Ninjano is in his “Clark Kent” look.

  115. ansky says:

    ok more than one compliment for the Yanks today already by McCarver…i’m scared.

  116. Handtius says:

    the yanks have speed on the bases.

  117. Bob Stone says:

    When did Jered Weaver get a haircut? Or am I confusing him with Jeff? Hopefully he got a haircut and will end up the way Samson did with Delilah.

  118. baravelli says:

    Does anybody know the Frank Sinatra recording of “Mack the Knife?” At the end, he sings a few verses that are just about him singing the song, and the band behind him and stuff. One of the lines he sings, naming the musicians, is “Bill Miller playin’ that piano!” Every time I hear Bill Miller the ump mentioned, I hear “Bill Miller playin’ that piano!” in my head.

  119. danny says:

    this is such a weird time for a playoff game, come’on lets got cano.

  120. ShuutoHeat says:

    Shut up McCarver.

  121. Mike Axisa says:

    C’mon Swishalicious. Just give me a deep fly ball to score Godzilla.

  122. Reggie C. says:

    That’s a nice changeup.

    1st and 3rd. 1 out.

    Not the worst result. Cano watched his pitch earlier.

  123. Moshe Mandel says:

    The 2-1 pitch was a great change. Robbie should have known that was coming.

  124. Dela G says:

    cmon swish

  125. rob says:

    when did cano become tentative

  126. Andy in Sunny Daytona says:

    So would Fox, Joe .

  127. count crapulent says:

    I’ve heard that Andy pitches better with runners on. Does anyone know if that bears out statistically or sabermetrically or whatever the hell?

  128. ansky says:

    dont cha just love how Buck always recognizes people in the stands?

  129. Dela G says:

    mccarver… can you shut the hell up plz?

  130. Drew says:

    Is someone choking mccarver?

  131. Stadium Garlic Fries says:

    Is McCarver eating again?

  132. Dela G says:

    damn swisher, not even close to being hard enough

    let’s go melkman

  133. Mike Axisa says:

    Not deep enough, Swish.

  134. Handtius says:

    Sandler and Jack? Nice.

  135. rob says:

    lets go melkYYY

  136. danny says:

    LMAO wtf was that noise?

    jack :)

  137. charlespoet says:

    That was a wasted AB. Damn.

  138. Reggie C. says:

    SHIT.

    Not loving Swish at the moment. Can’t leave RISP stranded when there were no outs.

  139. Drew says:

    It’s your time to shine Melkman. Let’s get it.

  140. JMK aka The Overshare says:

    Missed opportunities.

  141. Dela G says:

    damn, weaver at 40 pitches

    oh well, the yanks know they need to be more effing productive please

  142. Drew says:

    Dang. Come on guys.

  143. Jordan says:

    Ugh, frustrating

  144. trueblue says:

    Terrible

  145. count crapulent says:

    jack on the set of the Departed: I am a Yankee fan. I will not wear a Red Sox hat.

  146. Tom Zig says:

    ughh we really need to start hitting.

  147. Jake H says:

    Swish got too excited. Weaver can only get the curve over, change ups have been up and no FB command. I see him only lasting 5.

  148. Handtius says:

    They’re getting their hits and walks. Next time through, they’ll rake him.

  149. Mike Pop says:

    Taking shots at Boras?

    Very professional.

  150. count crapulent says:

    Goldilocks offense: it’s too cold, it’s too hot

  151. Chantmaster says:

    Whats the best game castish type thing on the internet? Sooo annoying there playing during work

  152. Tank the Frank says:

    Yankees are now 3-23 with RISP this series…and are up 2-0 with a 1-0 lead in Game 3.

  153. phil O'neill says:

    Cano is horrible, i really dont like the guy

  154. JMK aka The Overshare says:

    That’s a fascinating conversation between them. Thanks for showing that, Fox.

  155. Drew says:

    lol Jorge is like, STFU gringo.

  156. Stadium Garlic Fries says:

    How did Andy make 3 starts in two visits here mr.mccarver?

  157. baravelli says:

    Jorge should have said something like “We got in at 2. No, wait, 3. I always get 2 and 3 confused…”

  158. Handtius says:

    Damn, he just beat it out.

  159. JMK aka The Overshare says:

    Good call. Definitely safe.

  160. charlespoet says:

    Still don’t know how Robbie gets so much on the ball without looking like he is even trying. Just amazing.

  161. Stadium Garlic Fries says:

    McCarver pulling same trick as my 5yr old son, counting each throw to 1B.

  162. Reggie C. says:

    Good to see the site is back. That “fatal error” message kinda scared me a sec.

  163. Handtius says:

    2 innings, 2 double plays…I take it.

  164. Stadium Garlic Fries says:

    big crowd..shut up.

  165. Moshe Mandel says:

    Andy Pettitte: 8 throws to first.
    Tim McCarver: about a thousand mentions of that fact.

    • Drew says:

      The other night he said, this is the sixth time this inning Jorge has walked to the mound. I couldn’t believe he actually counted how many times he did it.

  166. JMK aka The Overshare says:

    Has RAB been a little screwy for anyone else?

    “Fatal error: Call to undefined function show_unread_comment_status() in /home/rivekab2/public_html/wp-content/themes/FlexxProfessional/comments.php on line 78″

  167. Doug says:

    Fuck you, Fidelity Investments. Where’s my commercial featuring an Asian guy lying in bed with a white girl?

  168. j says:

    wow pettitte on fire.

  169. Doug says:

    DROID DOES. IT WILL ALSO DEVOUR YOUR CHILDREN

  170. Charlie says:

    holy shit, these announcers are just laughably bad. McCarver: “Kendry didn’t want to swing, but did.” Really? Isn’t that like every other fuckin check swing in the history of baseball?

  171. Mike Oxbeg says:

    Exactly the way we wanted the game to start. Andy only 20 pitches, 2 gidp. Weaver 40 pitches after 2 innings BRING ON THAT MIDDLE RELIEF MEAT!

  172. Dela G says:

    cmon guys, have to make him work

  173. Drew says:

    Sorry Manny, Alex is coming for your number one spot.

    /Luda’d

  174. Brazilian Yankee says:

    Just got home, how’s Pettitte so far? And how’s the offense?

  175. baravelli says:

    Pettitte gets that double play ball so reliably that it seems like putting a runner on first isn’t an advantage for the offense at all. That’s just part of Pettitte’s m.o.

  176. trueblue says:

    Damon is god awful

  177. Drew says:

    His parents are separated.

    Great writing, FOX.

  178. MikeD says:

    Watching on Gamecast as I’m at work. I can see the results, but how does Andy look? For that fact, how does Weaver look on the pitching front?

  179. Mike Axisa says:

    Hah, Ken Rosenthal said Weaver’s dad is watching Jeff in Philly. Jeff isn’t even on the Dodgers’ NLCS roster.

  180. Mike Oxbeg says:

    Damn Tex is struggling

  181. JMK aka The Overshare says:

    Man, what has been with Tex?

  182. Jake H says:

    Who say that curve to strike out Tex? I know I did.

  183. Reggie C. says:

    Teixiera looks really bad.

    Get it together man. Steal some of Arod’s shine !

  184. Keanu Reeves says:

    Still waiting for the offense to go into “fuck shit up” mode.

  185. Ivan says:

    Yankee offense not clicking rite now.

  186. Stadium Garlic Fries says:

    Tex looks like AROD from 05-06 Playoffs..

  187. charelspoet says:

    Damon and Tex have got to pull their heads out and do something. Only listening to Sterling so my point of reference is what Sterling sees, but sounds like both of them are on fishing trips at the plate.

    • Bob Stone says:

      That’s the way it looks on TV too. Weaver’s off speed stuff looks tough today though.

    • trueblue says:

      Honestly the only guys doing a damn thing are Jeter and Arod. Everyone else is fucking up at various levels.

      • JobaWockeeZ says:

        Damon getting hits in Game 1 is fucking up.
        Teixeira with the walk off HR and the defensive plays is fucking up.
        Matsui with a few hits and a home run is fucking up.
        Jorge with a couple hits is fucking up.
        Cano with a couple hits including that triple in Game 2 is fucking up.
        Swisher too with a couple hits is fucking up.

  188. Drew says:

    Teixy it’s warm out, time to hit.

  189. ansky says:

    I’m hoping someone fedex’s Tex’s bat from the regular season.

  190. rob says:

    looks like we need lotsa zeros from pett

    • count crapulent says:

      Andy gets pissed when they don’t pick him up. He’ll be giving them the evil eye over the mitt in a bit.

  191. Dela G says:

    attaboy swisher

  192. ShuutoHeat says:

    Pettitte said to Napoli, try this shit!

  193. Stadium Garlic Fries says:

    Note to Fox, it is not an achievment when you make a playoff in 4 team division in 2nd largest media market in country..stop praising the donut man..

  194. Bob Stone says:

    Swisher is so much better on defense in right than Abreu.

  195. Dela G says:

    man you can’t let aybar get on base

  196. ShuutoHeat says:

    Wow, Pettitte is sawing off the bats left and right.

  197. Stadium Garlic Fries says:

    One time you don’t want bat to break and it does…lucky single..

  198. Moshe Mandel says:

    He had Aybar heading in the wrong direction.

  199. JMK aka The Overshare says:

    With the exception of Jeter, A-Rod and Matsui, has anyone really been putting up any numbers?

  200. Brazilian Yankee says:

    Almost got him.

  201. Reggie C. says:

    FUCK.

    Aybar got lucky right there. Aybar looks like a less ‘roided version of Manny.

  202. baravelli says:

    “I get your drift, and it’s the right drift.” Guess who said that?

  203. slappy white says:

    McCarver: “I get your drift” …..nice expression Fonzie

  204. ShuutoHeat says:

    I would pay $57.99 to watch a televised Figgins Pedroia Rosenthal free for all cage fight.

  205. danny says:

    throw the pitch!

  206. Moshe Mandel says:

    I have no idea what McCarver just said about turns. Don’t worry Timmie, I’m sure it made sense in your head.

  207. baravelli says:

    It would be cool if Pettitte picks off Aybar, just to keep his string going of allowing a single and still facing the minimum every inning.

  208. Jackson says:

    Pettitte is in Aybar’s head. Time to get Figgins here.

  209. Reggie C. says:

    Pettitte is in control of the pace of this game. Just hoping these throws over to 1st dont sap his endurance.

    damn. SB.

  210. Mike Axisa says:

    Ok good, now worry about the damn runner.

  211. Handtius says:

    Poop face.

  212. Brazilian Yankee says:

    Focus on the hitter now Andy.

  213. ShuutoHeat says:

    Lol McCarver and his pop up slide talk made Figgins pop up.

  214. Ivan says:

    So far, so good Pettitte.

  215. [...] wrote about the similarities between the ALDS and the ALCS in this afternoon’s game thread, and those similarities continued today. The Yankees won both Game Ones thanks to CC [...]

    somehow it’s legal, I promise.
