  • charlespoet

    well, that sucks.

  • Steve H

  • Ben

    How the fuck does anyone walk gomez?

    • http://cache.daylife.com/imageserve/0awG8jw7Ax5xR/610x.jpg Drew

      I blame Melky Posada.

    • ashish

      I know right! Shades of 2007 ALDS Game 2 with Joba. This time no midges and the game wasn’t tied.

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

        So, not really like 2007.

  • BigBlueAL

    I ask again, a fucking curveball????????????????????????????

    • pete

      to nick punto, no less

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

      I agree. It doesn’t make sense.

  • JAM

    Somebody explain why we didn’t go to Mo one hitter ago…

    • Brazilian Yankee

      Girardi is a genius.

      • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=siYKRL4I3UA JobaWockeeZ

        If he did that I know half of you will still complain.

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

          Exactly.

    • http://cache.daylife.com/imageserve/0awG8jw7Ax5xR/610x.jpg Drew

      Because Phil has been money all fucking year? Just a guess.

  • Chef

    Setting up for an exciting walk off!!! I LIKE IT!!!

  • Brazilian Yankee

    If I’m not mistaken Yankees’ pitching has allowed 4 walks, 5 hits and 2 HBP with 2 outs tonight. You’re not going to win many games pitching like that.

  • Salty Buggah

    I said this last game too…it seems like a lot of hits come of Hughes curve since August.

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

    Harris and Punto–the new Papi and Manny.

  • Mister Delaware

    If they score here, fine, they’re atleast on base via the hit. The fucking walks are infuriating.

  • slappy white

    now Mariano ?

  • Jon

    can it be said enough….Nick. Fucking. Punto.

  • Mike bk

    no one gets pie…we take it in the 8th…

  • BigBlueAL

    So now Mo comes in.

  • SF Yanks

    You gotta go with your best best in that situation. Which was a fastball.

    Alright Mo, pretend it’s a save.

  • Patrick T

    Hey, is Nick Punto a small, white baseball player with no ability? Just guessing by the way the guys in the booth are describing him.

  • pete

    fuck baseball

  • Dela G

    fucking a this is incredible

    i want to rip my hair out

    3-1 twins

  • Jackson

    What the f

  • ShuutoHeat

    That’s fucking it, I’m unlocking the pitchfork and torch shed. I’m going to wait for the fucking assgoblin ump at the doorstep of his home.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Fucking joke..

  • JAM

    His formerly devastating curve generates a lot of contact. Bite doesn’t seem as sharp. You can’t get by forever on a 94mph [fairly straight] fastball.

    • whozat

      That’s why he has the 88-90 MPH slider/cutter.

    • Chef

      You have no idea what you’re talking about.

      • Steve H

        +8000

  • trueblue

    Way to close it down Mo…

  • whozat

    I guess they decided to just spot the Twins this game, huh?

  • Mister Delaware

    I DIDN’T FUCKING MEAN IT, BASEBALL GODS!

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

    Bah.

  • Souter Fell

    expletive

  • cjc

    godamn my fucking 18 month old nephew swings harder than that fucking baseball fucking punto fuck now mo gives one up this fucking sucks man

  • SF Yanks

    I am so fucking angry right now.

  • BigBlueAL

    The Yankees will win a battle of the bullpens.

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

      That.

      • BigBlueAL

        Sorry, cant agree with you on this one. Yankees bullpen = Fail tonight.

        If they comeback and win it means their bullpen was less shitty than the Twins bullpen.

      • whozat

        Not today, it seems.

        Our best gave up two runs to their 7-8-9-1 hitters.

  • Charlie

    um, nobody? this is fucking terrible. WHy the FUcK didn’t girardi bring mo in there????????????? FFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCKKKKKKKKK. I’m gonna kill something/someone. dumbest fucking manager alive. this game is fuckin over. we’re not scoring off joe nathan

    • trueblue

      Mo fucked the next batter up. Just saved him a few pitches

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

      None of Girardi’s bullpen decisions thus far have been wrong. None of them. I fully support every single decision and non-decision he’s made to this point.

      • pete

        this

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

          Phil Hughes and Mariano Rivera are excellent pitchers, and they gave up a couple of runs. It happens.

          Joe Girardi did not make them give up those runs.

          • Charlie

            actually, joe girardi threatened to rape mo and hughes if they didn’t give up those runs.

    • SF Yanks

      For your sake, I hope your joking.

    • http://cache.daylife.com/imageserve/0awG8jw7Ax5xR/610x.jpg Drew

      heh. I’m sure you bitched when Mo gave up a hit too.

  • Salty Buggah

    WTF Mo?

  • Dela G

    cmon mo, just pretend this is a save please

    this is incredible

  • Yankeefan91 Arod fan

    And panic sets in at Yankee stadium as fans start to see another early exit from the once again heavily favored Yankees.

    • http://cache.daylife.com/imageserve/0awG8jw7Ax5xR/610x.jpg Drew

      lol.. yepp. Game over after 7.5 and no way we can win in the baggy.

    • sangreal

      bit premature much?

    • Accent Shallow

      Wait, what?

    • Chef

      Welcome to baseball… Anything can happen in a 5 game series.

      Maybe the problem is “analysts” heavily favoring anyone over 5 games… You think? Maybe?

  • trueblue

    You just let up 2, 2 out runs to Gomez, Harris, Punto and Spann… FUCKING TERRIBLE

  • Jon

    Cant wait for this joke of a playoff team to get their asses handed to them in Fenway

    • Charlie

      i’m confused by this comment quite a bit

      • whozat

        Sox fan.

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

      So… you’re rooting for us to win the series?

      You eat pieces of shit for breakfast?

  • sal

    two words Joe Nathan, so we have till someone gets on before we see Joe Nathan

  • Charlie

    Oh, fuckkkkk you mo. get a fuckin out you dumb shit

    • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=siYKRL4I3UA JobaWockeeZ

      Was that necessary? Damn.

      • Charlie

        yea its fucking necessary. there is no fucking way you’re a yankees fan. you don’t even care when they’re fuckin losing

        • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=siYKRL4I3UA JobaWockeeZ

          I don’t fall off a cliff when the best team in baseball is down by a mere 2 runs. You know like uhm..YESTERDAY?

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=siYKRL4I3UA JobaWockeeZ

            Oh excuse me, 2 days ago. BUT NOOOO THEY LSOE THEY FUCKING SUCK LETS CUSS TEH PLAYUERS LOLOLOLOL MO U FUCKIGN SUCK PEEN!!!

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

          You think you’re “caring” when we’re losing, and your “caring” is actually just screaming and pulling out hair and blaming people for doing the wrong thing when they’re not doing the wrong thing at all.

          You have no idea what you’re talking about. You’re embarrassing yourself.

    • Joey

      If you were next to me I’d hit you. Blasphemy.

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

      Hey Charlie, maybe you wanna stop talking for a while, you know? Sit the next few plays out.

      • Joey

        Can I borrow your shiv?

      • Charlie

        nah, i’m content taking my anger out on this keyboard

        • http://cache.daylife.com/imageserve/0awG8jw7Ax5xR/610x.jpg Drew

          I bet you are.

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

          You do it poorly. You should consider stopping.

          Why must we be punished for your immaturity?

          • Charlie

            how the fuck are you being punished?

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

              Because I have to listen to you whine and complain and say painfully dumb shit.

    • http://cache.daylife.com/imageserve/0awG8jw7Ax5xR/610x.jpg Drew

      Toolish.

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

      All of a sudden Harris is a gold glove silver slugger.

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

        …whoops.

        Still, if any thread deserved a mistaken comment it’s this one.

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

    Jorgie gets the pie. He doesn’t just hope we win this game, he’s going to fist it out of here.

  • Christopher

    Pinch hit for Melky when he’s up?

  • Mike bk

    Nathan pitching 2 innings?

  • Souter Fell

    alright magic time, tie it and win in the ninth

  • Dela G

    thank god they got out of that

    can we please get some runs?

    i don’t want to have to rally against joe nathan in the 9th

    • Mike bk

      with an off day tomorrow he should be in during the 8th if not starting it.

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

        Guerrier is good as well.

  • dkidd

    we’re winning this game

  • Salty Buggah

    OK, guys tie it up.

  • AJ

    So let’s say Posada gets on to start the inning. Do you pinch run Gardner for him and put in Cervelli for the rest of the game?

    • Mike bk

      problem is ur down 2 not 1.

      • AJ

        Understandable, but Gardner could run himself into scoring position and score on a single. But I worry about Cervelli calling pitches against Mauer.

    • Jackson

      Not down two, maybe if he was the tying or winning run.

      • AJ

        Nevermind that argument.

  • Jackson

    I’m still confident

    • Charlie

      you really shouldn’t be

      • Jackson

        No? The best team in baseball also happens to have the most come from behind wins. I think they can come back.

        • Charlie

          well they better do it fast. i doubt they score 2 off joe nathan

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

        You shouldn’t be dispensing advice on who should and shouldn’t be confident, since you’ve already shown a shocking lack of both perspective and baseball acumen.

  • Ben

    Yea the pen doesn’t matter

    • whozat

      Ben: 1
      Strawman: 0

  • sal

    REMEMBER THE PLAYOFF DON’T REALLY START TILL SOMEONE LOSES A HOME GAME.

    So If and I say If we go to Minn 1-1 I see a very pumped Yankee Team with a blowout come 12-3 yanks game 3

  • Will

    Hrm. No midges to blame it on this time.

  • Tony

    Once again, just want to make it clear that we have PLENTY of offense and don’t need to have our best players going for 9 innings.

    /girardi

    • Matty Ice

      you mean the best player who’s 0-2 tonight with a K?

      • Tony

        I mean the best player who isn’t Jose Ihaveajobbecausei’msogoodwiththepitchersbutajburnettjustwalked5guysandwouldhavegottendestroyedifthestrikezonewasn’toutoffuckingcontrolandwhydidijustcall8000straightfastballsohshitletsgroveonetobrendanfuckingharris Molina

  • PrintScreen

    A-rod’s going to win this one for us.

  • Reggie C.

    CLEARLY this is Posada’s fault. Can’t call a fucking game to save his life.

  • Salty Buggah

    Take cover…the trolls are out in full force!

    When we win #27, I say they cant celebrate. I’m keeping names of the complainer.

    • SF Yanks

      I’ll help you compile the list.

  • pete

    a-rod walkoff 2-run double

    • pete

      after a jorge hr

      • Mike bk

        tough to walk off in the 8th.

      • pete

        actually nvm that’s impossible. still going w/ the a-rod walkoff “single” to the gap in RC

        • None of your business

          It ain’t happnenin brotha :(

          Still we play well in the garbage bag so im not going nuts yet

  • mustang

    This is not over

  • Joe R

    Why is everyone crying that they didnt bring in Mo. It was Nick fucking Punto. I think Hughes 9/10 times can handle that.

    • SF Yanks

      It was just one putz, complaining

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

      Thank you.

  • http://cache.daylife.com/imageserve/0awG8jw7Ax5xR/610x.jpg Drew

    Holy Mo. As soon as we go down all the trolls come around.

  • Alex S

    fucking JoPo

  • Dela G

    that was way out of the zone

    bullshit

  • Mike bk

    so that’s a strike for minny, but wasnt for hughes.

  • Matty Ice

    atta boy Jorgie.

    • trueblue

      keep bitchin about not playing… awful AB

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Great call ump. Another great fucking call.

  • charlespoet

    one thing most of the panic stricken have forgotten is that the Yankees, unlike the Red Sox, play well away from home.

    Now the fun begins.

  • Dela G

    holy shit

    how did he make that play

    • pete

      new least favorite player

  • pete

    ugh

  • mustang

    holy shit
    lol

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

    At what point did Brendan Harris sell his soul to Satan?

  • Jackson

    Brendan Fucking Harris.

  • Alex S

    can we get a motherfucking break?

  • sal

    its all about TV ratings and TBS wants a yankee game 4 and 5 so MLB has the UMP making sure of it

    • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=siYKRL4I3UA JobaWockeeZ

      Best reasoning I’ve heard. Dead serious.

      • sal

        kinda reminds me of the NBA the way the calls behind the plate have gone .

        ever notice a NBA team can be 29 – 51

        but be 20 and 20 at home

        you can’t out play the UMPS or Refs

  • Reggie C.

    THE TWINS CLEARLY WANT THIS GAME MORE THAN THE YANKS.

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

      STEREOTYPES ARE A REAL TIME-SAVER.

  • Mike

    really?

  • Accent Shallow

    This really is Brendan Harris’ game, isn’t it? Damn.

  • cjc

    brendan harris is just living in the twilight zone right now wtf is going on here

  • DreDog

    I’m not scared of Joe Nathan.

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

      Brendan Harris is starting worry me, though.

  • Ben

    1 run? This is ridiculous

  • Salty Buggah

    Twins lucked out with that Tolbert injury. Harris is good tonight.

  • Dela G

    cmon johnny, please get on base for tex

  • http://www.repairmycomputer.com Marc
  • http://twitter.com/hopjake Jake H

    O hasn’t done anything tonight. Pretty pathetic. Still some time but Nathan is going to be tough.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Girardi should consider hitting Swisher second instead of Damon.

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

      Perhaps.

      Doubt that helps Damon snap out of it, though.

      • Brazilian Yankee

        The team can’t afford an automatic out hitting in between Jeter and Tex, especially with Tex struggling.

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

          You have a point.

  • Dela G

    how the hell was that a strike??

    how???

  • pete

    revised prediction: cano walkoff

  • http://twitter.com/hopjake Jake H

    This ump is terrible.

  • cjc

    this is just fucking ridiculous beat by nic punto and all world brendan harris not to mention a huge strike zone up and away

  • BigBlueAL

    Twins bullpen sucks.

  • Matty Ice

    this umpire has easily had one of the worst strike zones I’ve ever seen in my life….you want to throw a strike? Throw a ball.

    • charlespoet

      um remember Eric Gregg in Game 7 – Marlins v Indians. He was giving strikes in the middle of the outside batters box.

      Merriweather sucks tonight no doubt, but seriously, what is MLB or the umpire’s union going to do about it….

      Yep, give that man a raise and a gold star. There are less than 6 good umpires in MLB. The rest, just suck.

  • AJ

    PitchTrax just said strike two was in the same spot as ball one.

    Merriweather = EPIC FAILURE

    • whozat

      Nah, he’s TOTALLY established that he’ll call that a strike.

      The announcers said so.

  • Mike

    they have to fucking swing at everything with this strike zone.

  • charlespoet

    Nope, Yanks aren’t winning this one.

    • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=siYKRL4I3UA JobaWockeeZ

      You can’t when umpires change the zone and the rules for teams.

      • charlespoet

        While I would like to say I agree, don’t blame the umpires. Yankees have hit for shit tonight, chasing bad pitches. Burnett was a yo-yo and WALKS to the wrong hitters and bad pitch calling killed them.

        This one is on the Yanks not the umpire.

  • Mouch “Half Man Half Couch”

    The Twins are just living the dream.

  • Alex S

    I say this game is over, Nathan in the 9th…..

  • Salty Buggah

    Dude, Damon needs to start hitting again. It’s been a long time slumping now.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Merriweather has money on the Twins. That’s the only possible explanation.

  • Chris

    Chuck Meriwether makes Laz Diaz, C.B. Bucknor & Angel Hernandez look like the trinity of umpiring excellence.

  • trueblue

    Pathetic AB #22 on the night

  • ansky

    I hate how in the playoffs this team NEVER blows out the pitcher they’re supposed to blow out!…i mean come on at no point should the words “Blackburn has not allowed a hit” been used in this fucking game!

    • pete

      7-2 isn’t quite a blowout, but it’s about all you can expect. So, this team has failed to meet expectations offensively once. Of course, in crazy yankees fan land, once=always

    • Tony

      If the Twins had a #2 starter that “should be blown out” they wouldn’t be in the playoffs.

  • Sean Serritella

    This sucks big time but don’t forget, we’re playing one of the best teams in the league. This is the playoffs.

    • Brazilian Yankee

      No, that should not be an excuse. Phil Hughes choked and the Yankees lost.

      • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=siYKRL4I3UA JobaWockeeZ

        They aren’t going to win 11 straight postseason games.

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

          Eh, we might.

        • Brazilian Yankee

          They were the best home team in the Majors. THey played at home against a mediocre pitcher at best. THey should have won.

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

            The game is not over yet.

            • Brazilian Yankee

              I know, I know. Save that comment for when this one is finished, if we lose. =]

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

                Are you telling me that, or was I telling you that?

      • http://cache.daylife.com/imageserve/0awG8jw7Ax5xR/610x.jpg Drew

        Someone needs to get in your head and explain, baseball is not over after 8 innings.

    • Charlie

      the twins are not a good team, and that’s a really stupid ass excuse

  • http://cache.daylife.com/imageserve/0awG8jw7Ax5xR/610x.jpg Drew

    Nathan is 0-3 against the Yanks and has a 4+ ERA. Please, this game is not over.

    • mustang

      second that….see u when they win this thing

    • Charlie

      sss, plus the yanks can’t come back in the ninth every time. i hate to say that i doubt we win this one

      • Jake K.

        Clearly you love to say it.

      • http://cache.daylife.com/imageserve/0awG8jw7Ax5xR/610x.jpg Drew

        It’s his career. Going by your method we cannot judge any closer against any team ever.

  • AJ

    As someone mentioned before, this team has 36 come from behind victories, including a weekend full of them over the Twins earlier this season.

    Pessimists, pump the brakes. Tex, A-Rod and Matsui are due up to start the ninth. If the Yankees can hold the Twins to this two-run lead, I like their chances in the bottom of the ninth.

    • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

      Not against Nathan, I’m sorry. He’s been every bit as good as Mo over the course of his career. If we gave Mo a 3-1 lead, I’d have total confidence, so I can’t say anything different for Nathan.

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

        You remember when Ichiro beat Mo with that two run homer a few weeks ago?

        Good times…

        • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=siYKRL4I3UA JobaWockeeZ

          Or the time one of the Yankee walk offs came form Nathan?

          • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

            IIRC, he had worked 3 days in a row, which isn’t the case tonight.

      • mustang

        we will see

    • whozat

      Sure. But, can we please dispense with the notion that “we have enough offense to carry Molina” or that “AJ pitches better to Molina”?

      AJ walked 5 and hit two with his “personal catcher”, Melky isn’t that good a hitter and is slumping, Damon is slumping, and the team managed to not get many hits off of the most hittable pitcher in the bigs. Having Posada in the 6 hole could only have helped and really, couldn’t have made AJ much worse.

      • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=siYKRL4I3UA JobaWockeeZ

        But, can we please dispense with the notion that “we have enough offense to carry Molina”
        But they do.

        • Brazilian Yankee

          They didn’t show it tonight.

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=siYKRL4I3UA JobaWockeeZ

            Right not tonight. But on most nights they will.

      • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

        “But, can we please dispense with the notion that “we have enough offense to carry Molina” or that “AJ pitches better to Molina”?”

        No, we can’t.

    Against Nathan: Teixeira (6 for 10, 1 HR), ARod (4 for 9), Matsui (2 for 5)

    Relax

    This umpire suck, the strikezone sucks, yadda yadda yadda. The Twins are dealing with the same umpiring crew. The Twins are bringing it and the Yanks have to match the intensity. If they do that they win the series in Minny.

      This has nothing to do with “intensity”. Nothing. Both teams are equally intense.

      This is nothing but a mixture of talent and vagary.

      You’d have a good point if the same umpiring crew was calling the same way for both teams.

      • pete

        the yanks clearly aren’t trying as hard as the twins, b/c we can totally see that watching a game of baseball

  • E-ROC

    Prediction: The Yanks are going to Chase Wright-ed Joe Nathan in the ninth.

  • Dela G

    very good strike out for mo

    Oh, Mo, blessed be thy cutter.

  • Argenys

    This HP umpire is a damn joke. IF he is going to make those calls then make them for both teams you fucking prick!

  • Souter Fell

    Brett tying run?

    • Frigidevil

      depends on who’s in front of him

      • Souter Fell

    i seriously wish that denard span hadn’t gotten that hit

  • Reggie C.

    Law of Averages; Twins now realize that the Yanks are beatable. Twins will reel off 2 straight wins.

    5th game… who knows.

      So if I flip a coin and it lands heads three times in a row, am I going to get tails the next three flips? LAW OF AVERAGES.

      • Reggie C.

        Yes. Try it. It’ll happen.

      Logic fail.

      A baseball game is not a random, single coin-flip. The Law of Averages is too blunt for something this complex.

      Bad analogy.

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

        The Law of Averages isn’t even logically valid. It’s bullshit “common sense” reasoning.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Another 2-out baserunner…this is just amazing.

  • AJ

    Prediction: The Yankees are going to have an Aaron Boone like moment in extra-innings.

  • Charlie

    holy shit this game really sucked

      Something or someone has really sucked and it rhymes with Barley.

        marley?

          Close, it also rhymes with Marley!

      sucked? past tense? as far as i know, it’s still going on

      • Charlie

        i meant has sucked

    • pete

      *this game [has] really sucked [thus far]”
      fixed

  • Reggie C.

    I love how Mo’s thrown a ton of pitches in what’s gonna be a losing effort. Great job Joe G !

      Reggie: Think before you type.

    • http://cache.daylife.com/imageserve/0awG8jw7Ax5xR/610x.jpg Drew

      I am so confused. Some people wanted Mo in one batter earlier, some people want him out of the game now. When is the right time to have Mo pitch?

    • Brazilian Yankee

      Off-day tomorrow. We gotta keep this one close. I wouldn’t want anybody else in there to keep it close.

    • pete

      Joe G made one debatable mistake this game. Starting Molina. Every other move has made perfect sense. Mariano has thrown a bunch o’ pitches and has the day off tomorrow. Big effin deal.

  • Accent Shallow

    Mo doing his best to ice Nathan by not recording the final out just yet

  • ashish

    hey mike can you start another thread for good luck?

  • Salty Buggah

    If Tex gets on, I say we win. But he better get on.
