They got this.
That half inning will make this half inning even better.
If A-Rod can beat Joe Nathan, A-Rod can beat Brian Fuentes.
He’s 1-for-2 career against Fuentes with a K and a Grand Slam.
A-Rod can beat Brian Fuentes anyone.
I don’t think they are pitching to A-Rod. I wouldn’t.
A rod will steal. They have to pitch to him
at least fuentes is the closer
The 2009 Yankees deserve the benefit of the doubt in EVERY situation. EVERY situation. Even down a run in extra innings.
Even if it’s up to Guzman (!!!!!) and Gardner?
Hairston for Guzman i would think?
that’s the way BABY !!!
who wants a fucking pie!?!?!
Pinch-hit Hairston for Guzman?
Might as well.
What I just told my pops.
Gotta think that’s what Joe will do – it’s a no-brainer
Definitely. Guzman has no bat.
They took all his bats away.
Marte’s slider was nasty to Morales – did his job
D-Rob to finish the inning… then time for pie
Not the least bit worried.
Will A-rod get anything to hit?
That’s the key.
I’d be much more confident if Matsui and Swisher were coming up…
I’d be much less confident if we weren’t the Yankees, but we are.
We’re the balls.
I assume Hairston hits for Guzman.
arod single, guzman walk-off HR
I still think we got a job shot. But there was too many great chances by the Yanks. Tex really needs to step up.
you just can’t walk that piece of shit matthews you just can’t goddamn it
Yea, Im surprised at the lack of faith by a lot of people here.
time for this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hrML6s1wNHk
Bold Prediction: Yanks will bring the tying run into the batters box
Hate to say I told ya so…Actually I dont. I love saying it!!!!
guzman … inside the park homer.
This is one of those fucking games man…it was in the bag. If our pitches only give up on 2ERs we should win. It aint like Sand Koufax was on the mound!
I’d be very surprised if Rodriguez gets more than maybe one pitch to hit.
Brian Fuentes may try to intentionally walk him and fail, giving him a pitch to hit by accident.

Really people, jumping ship?
That’s the way it is when your not real.
GO YANKS !!!
ARE YOU READY
Cmon A-rod. Get a HR or at least get on base please.
we had walk off hits by cervelli and miranda, its the yanks not the hitter
Yankees have not scored since the 3rd inning..
Somebody is due…..
WHAT DID I TELL YOU BOYS!!
how is guzman do up? Didn’t he pinch hit for matsui? so how could you sub a DH?
Hinske would sure come in handy here.
Tie this up.
Just hit the ball hard, Al
wow, pitching to Arod
Lets go Yanks.
Son of a…
Alright, dig out of the hole now, Alex.
why does guzman have a bat in his hand?
THANK YOU AROD !!!!!!!!!
ALEX RODRIGUEZ IS A MOTHER FUCKING GOD.
Sucka got no juice!!!
Thank you A-Rod!
Im not at all surprised.
HE IS THE GREATEST
Suck on that Angels.
HOLY MOTHERFUCKING SHITBALLS!
You can climb off the ledges now
Thank you…who doesn’t BELIIEVE
OH MY FUCKING GOD
I TOLD U!!!! I TOLD U!!! WE CAN DO IT!!!
pitching to ARod…horrendously retarded.
BEST PLAYER ON THE PLANET.
A-Rod no longer…Meet Superman!
why the hell do you pitch to him?
ON AN 0-2 COUNT.
CLUTCH ROD, TAKE ME NOW.
my [a]rod is growing
Never doubt me.
WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW. WE WILL NOT GOT QUIETLY INTO THE NIGHT!!
Holy moly. OMG.
WE WILL NOT BE STOPPED!
I KEEP TRYING TO TELL YOU MUTHAFUCKAS BUT YOU DON’T WANT TO LISTEN
No what do all the MF-ing negative doubters have to say?
They will come up with something. They always do.
Wow. Just Wow
STEEP DECLINE THIS, BUSTER!
where’s the “Mike Scosia knows everything” comments from the Buttboy
FUCK YOU WHO ALL JUMPED
/NOT REALLY BUT FUCK YEAH
Fucking called it … along with a dozen others here.
0-2 HR for Alex
11th inning pie again, come on.
OOOH Abreu actually touched the wall… Scary stuff.
I’m stunned Abreu went anywhere near the wwall
The rain must have affected his depth perception.
if you sub your DH, don’t you loose your dh>????
You lose your DH if he plays the field. That’s it.
No. we just talked about this.
If you move the DH into the field, you lose the DH.
If you move your DH into the field, you lose the DH. You can pinch hit/run for him all you want.
thanks for making me smarter everyone
ARod=new man in the postseason
>>>KEEP THE FAITH.
Have you learned your lesson, now?
why not let hairston hit?
So Guzman is a better hitter than Hairston???????
It’s tied up in extra innings again. Don’t make extra moves until absolutely necessary.
why is Guzman batting? why?
My god, you could not have scripted this any better.
OMFG…no one can stop…Alexander the great strikes again…
Okay Freddy Guzman should never get an at bat again.
Guzman looks worse then Molina with a bat.
That’s unbelievable. With the next two hitters being Guzman and Gardner, he needed to do that, and he did.
oh. my. god.
Guzman sucked badly there. Where was Hairston?
Being saved for a bigger spot.
And that’s why Freddy Guzman is not usually a DH.
why in gods name did guzman bat
cos this game may still take a while… ie. he could PR for Posada
Seriously, how is this fucking guy in the majors??? in the LCS???? He’d hit 9th on my softball team
He can run and play defense.
you can’t steal 1st
Thank you Kate Hudson!
FUCK YOU CRITICS
And on an 0-2 count.
This is where Swisher and Matsui would have been handy.
If your NOT real why even comment !!!!!!
you can back on the boat now
AROD IS THE FUCKING BOSS.
and guzman had no business batting there.
Someone wake Joe. PLEASE
Those were to bad strike calls!
Come on boys, bring this one home.
AROD just breathed new life into this tired game.
I LOVE this team.
comment of the night. and I agree.
SO who pitches for us if this game goes deep?
Marte and Robertson?
Yeah, we need to end this here.
Ace would be pitching the next inning, at least.
FAREWELL REGGIE JACKSON. THERES A NEW CAT IN TOWN! MR AROD OCTOBER!
No it’s so cold he thinks it’s April and he’s playing accordingly.
Gardner gets a walk, steals 3 bases. Game.
saving hairston for an injury maybe???
I don’t question Girardi anymore. he deserves that for what he’s done.
did he put on a #13 jersey?
there has to be some reason that guzman hit there. Please, someone tell me why Guzman was hitting there when you have a righty on the bench with 10 hrs in 380 ab. are you saving him for next time guzman comes up
People’s lack of baseball knowledge is shocking to me.
ok. please enlighten me.
It’s a tie game, bases empty in extra innings. You have no idea how long this game goes. You don’t lift Guzman for Hairston for a pinch hitter there because the slight upgrade at the plate isn’t worth losing critical depth in a game that may be going 2-4 more innings, particularly since it’s no-outs, bases empty, and statistically you have a small chance of actually scoring a run since you have nothing started yet.
You let Guzman bat and see if he can get on, and save Hairston for a better PH situation, like if there’s a man on base, or save him for a PR situation if Posada gets on or something.
Don’t shoot all your bullets until your opponent is dead.
who else would he pinch hit for? i mean other than guzman. there’s no one out. so even a single in that spot would be huge. and, there is a big difference between guzman and hairston.
Did you read at all what I just wrote?
No, you didn’t.
Wow, epic fail giving A-Rod anything to hit with Guzman and Gardy coming up.
That was better than when I watched his game 3 home run live against the Twins. What a shot in the rain and a 0-2 count.
Do you have any more sand to bury him Mr.Buster Olney?
Cano we need a little help here.. you know what to do…
SWEEP THE LEG ROBBIE
Ninja can end it.
He could, but he won’t. Remember, the ninja likes to be lazy. Ending it would require more work than necessary for him. He knows the Yanks will win, so he is looking to let someone else do the work for him. That is the lazy ninja way!
There is only one AROCTOBER!
I don’t even care that we gave A-Rod a ‘bad’ contract.
And thats why they pitch around Pujols in the playoffs…
Shoulda just stood up, thrown up four fingers, and gave him first base.
Epic mistake by the supergenius Mike Scoscia.
Thank God we have A-Rod and Mo.
Did he earn his pinstripes yet?
Not until he has ten rings.
And now for the rain delay.
Mike S, best in the game?
I think not.
OK, cmon D-rob. Get a win now.
Now, will you people start believing? Have you learned your lesson?
There is nothing this team cannot do.
The Yankees could fix the economy if they wanted to.
I think I believe now.
well said. my man crush is official.
How many times?
Just give up either their real or they’re not.
Hope the Bullpen can hold them till A-Rod comes up again.
3 game TYING homeruns? Peh-shaw. Wake me up when A-Rod hits a game WINNER. Still unclutch.
Comment of the night.
hold em’ here and lets win in the next inning so we can get outta here. The rain’s going to wreak havoc on the drive home!
I don’t know why Scioscia pitched to ARod with two AAAers behind him.
Manger of the Year.
He is smarter than the game itself, just ask him.
I’m already having a panic attack. I wouldn’t last if there was a rain delay to another night.
I think that’s exactly what I need, actually.
I’m fucking dying over here, I need less drama or else I won’t make it to 2011.
1-2-3, Ace. Let’s go, buddy.
Or with Marte in the middle.
OK, never mind. Cmon Ace.
Is Kate Hudson pussy that good? Like seriously, I must know.
She made Owen Wilson’s career jump up a notch, but now look where he is…
It is so good that there mere thought of not having it made him cut his wrists
When I dated her… it was!
Its gotta be! Look at the results…must be gold down there.
Time to Rodman up, Ace. What would Dennis do?
Scioscia loses some coaching creds for that decision.
To Whom It May Concern:
Take your meme and stick it up your ass.
Oh god no.
Cashman should sign Guzman to DH and hit 5th next year… arod would hit 70HRs with that protection
He’s the next level of “feared.”
And on the front of ESPN.com? None other than Aybar and then Torii Hunter on the MLB page.
Not that I even care anymore.
Is Marte getting booed or is it the decision to bring in a new pitcher?
They’re saying boo-urns.
If Marte ever get hit here..I will ask AROD to personally assault Girardi..
this is a huge mistake, marte is terrible
God no. Was that just Damaso Marte? El diablo! El diablo!
Marte in to face Morales?
I find my lack of faith disturbing.
Morales is a beast as a lefty, not so much as a righty.
I know. I still stand by what I said.
And am so glad I was wrong.
……..I’m going to close my eyes and go by sound with Marte out.
That was not a good crowd reaction for this pitching change.
Doesn’t this mean the yanks have 1 pitcher left?
2, DRob and Gaudin.
And CC b/c by the time this game is over he’ll be on regular rest.
D-Rob and Gaudin yet.
While we have a break.
I thought they had to pitch to Al because he would steal off Fuentes.
Then Freddy G could bunt him over to third with one out.
Damaso Marte? after all this ? really?
why does girardi feel the need to change a pitcher for every better, aceves would have done fine
OK, once again never mind. Cmon Marte.
The Joe Girardi “I Was Here” stamp is being applied…again.
Hey — Mike — I see your inexplicable choice to have your pitcher throw to A-Rod and raise you a call to Damaso Marte
We need innings, marte can only pitch to 1 guy. Over managing to the max.
Still have Gaudin back there.
We can’t even use Swisher to pitch – He’s out too.
Do not like marte in this game.
Ace should have eaten some innings up.. .we are going to get in trouble very soon..
Gaudin can eat the innings, if that is possible tonight. At this point, we need to keep them from scoring and win the fucking game.
Who’s left in the bullpen Gaudain and Robertson?
holy crap, i totally forgot david robertson was there
Better than Jose Veras– c’mon Damaso.
Great freaking play Alex.
Alex says ‘Fuck your wet ball theory, Tim.”
Damaso Marte and Joe Girardi >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> the haters
Arod has a fucking CANNON
Arod deserves a raise.
AROD is not going to let Marte rain on his parade..
who is left in the pen ?
No big deal.
Is KRob our last pitcher?
Gaudin out there still.
Another change from Joe LaRussa.
And if he leaves Marte in there, you’d be pissed about Marte pitching to more than one guy.
girardi is overmanaging the bullpen here
dude, this is extra innings, you can’t have this shit going on with only one more pitcher left
well said my brotha
Believe in our skipper Dela.
Gaudin is good for 4 innings.
yeah i knew about gaudin, this is why i said he was the last pitcher left
Girardi has more faith in our offense than TSJC.
WTF? Don’t burn everyone in the pen now.
Damn, Marte is going to force me to the can for a nerves shit
I still like this relief depth. Gaudin is a great last option.
The Yankees might want to go ahead and win this in the bottom of the inning before we have Pettitte warming.
ARod has been studying the clutch ways of MO.
Good job Marte.
Off day tomorrow, all hands on deck.
Can we have Pettitte for one inning?
It’s OK. We have Gaudin left.
Game plan: Get the game into extras and bring in Chad Gaudin.
what are the chances sabathia goes in to pitch
lower than that of andy.
I bet he’d volunteer for it.
Just egging Girardi on.
‘Come on Skip.’
I totally disagree with everybody crying overmanaging of the bullpen. I think Girardi is doing everything he can to lock it down – and it’s worked so far, for what it’s worth, which is something – because he’s betting that the Yankees are gonna score soon and end it. I think that’s a rational risk to take.
yeah, he can’t make them hit but he can figure out the pitching
Nick Swisher was already pulled. So thats one less pitcher on staff. Sadface
Keep his 0.00 lifetime ERA in tact, yo.
I wonder if Chone is still fist-pumping?
This team wants me to have a stroke.
Frustrating game. But great game.
K-Rob has, I believe 2 one out wins under his belt, lets make it three.
Jeff Mathis sucks a$$. Could’ve left Marte, but no argument here for bringing in Robertson.
d-rob can go 2 innings.
Jesus H. Montero, some of you need to learn to count.
CHAD GAUDIN IS STILL IN THE BULLPEN. CALM DOWN.
Either learn to count or just read the comments…
I think Harkey could give them an inning or two also.
Gaudin is the “ace in the hole” according to Joe Buck…
I’ll have whatever he’s drinking.
Lol Gaudin needs something to company him, I kinda feel bad for him sitting by himself there.
then tell harkey to go inside.
Harkey is out in the rain doing whatever he is doing.
like I said before. Trust Girardi. He has more experience, and more on the line than any of us.
Robertson … heir to the 8th, master of the 12th … or is he.
dammit D-rob. just record 1 out.
Mathis with a double…really? Come the fuck on D-Rob.
Fuck D-Rob, it’s Jeff Mathis.
D-Rob thanks Mo for Gary Matthews
Jeff Mathis? Reallly?
Cmon PUHLEASE D-rob
all else fails ARod pitches the 19th
He’d strikeout the side.
On 2 pitches.
cause Kate got the magic pussy
Eh, right in the wheelhouse; even Mathis is gonna hit that. Get Izturis now, Dave.
Good thing he’s a catcher with that gapper.
cmon d-rob, get izturis out plz?
Jeff Mathis?? Seriously??
I am so tired of these terrible hitters actually get a hit.
DRob fail. That was the easiest hitter in the lineup.
why? there are two outs.
if robertson walks GMJ, i will chop heads
Come on crowd, start going nuts. Get into GMJ’s head!
OH CRAP THAT ONE GUY WAS RIGHT WHEN HE SAID MATHIS ALWAYS GETS TEH BIG HITS AGAINST US
Jeff Mathis on 2 strike count?
This feels like a bad decision…
I’m not a fan of this walk, but whatever he would’ve mowed down Izturis or Matthews.
This game is bad for my health rite now.
Every fucking inning that have to put a few guys on
come on D-Rob
ok, can we get out GMJ aka HGH?
This room needs a serious positive posse injection.
D ROB GOT THIS, MAN.
that was a lousy hanger.
hanger right there.
u got him K-Rob.
Jeter needs pie already.
D-ROB DROPS THE DEUCE
Clutch-Rob and Clutch-Rod!!!!!!!!!
I just ffist pumped 5 times.
Big K from K-master Robertson.
Now. Lets win.
I dream of Jeter
Now they gotta show this FUKKING LAME MOHEGAN SUN COMMERCIAL.
Now swing at that shit!
Dude, for me this game started at 4:57. I ate an entire box of cheezits for dinner. I can feel the salty grossness oozing out of my scalp.
Record for spillovers! Woo
LETS.END.THIS.SHIT! I’m sick of the Angels, sick of the rain, and sick of Buck and McCarver. Come on boys…Finish this.
