New thread for good luck.
Guys, we weren’t born to follow.
I was not elected to READ, I WAS ELECTED TO LEAD!!!!!

Close, it also rhymes with Marley!
Its gotta be gnarly, no?
No. It’s Charlie.
Your commenting last thread was shamefully pathetic. Step it up during this thread, please. Be logical and make more sense.
you’re right. i’m very disappointed in myself for using illogical expletives in a pleasant yankee blog thread
Apology accepted. Don’t let it happen again.
Think before you type.
Tex/ARod/Matsui are 14-29 off Nathan…..I think we’ll tag him. Will it be enough? We’ll see.
Swisher sucks on D
I blame it on the ump tonight that up and away took away a lot of 2nd or 3rd strikes……but I’ll give the Twins credit they played a hell of game, lets just hope for some late 9th magic
I’m still confident.
But at this point I’m also starting to get pretty drunk, so I take that with a grain of salt.
How many shots of Captain are you up to?
7, this game has been pretty tense.
TEIX, THIS WILL BE THE MOST IMPORTANT AT BAT AS A YANKEE FOR YOU. Earn your stripes.
Luck Luck Luck!
As someone brought up in the last thread, Nathan is 0-3 against the Yankees with a 4+ ERA. Tex, A-Rod and Matsui have good numbers against him. I’m confident we can see a little come from behind magic at the stadium.
And if not, oh well. The Yankees go to the dome and take two in Minny. Either way, this last half-inning will be interesting.
Nathan didn’t have this huge of a strikezone to work with before though
I’ll drink to that.
here we go…let the fun start
I think a Swish walk off would be sweet considering he played some good defense today. He also wears pie well.
I hate all the ads in the postseason. They’re so annoying!
Hoping for pie-related activities.
I can has some pie?
LET’S GO YANKEES.
KNOCK ON WOOD, rally caps boys!!!
Nice catch Swish…now please get a hit Tex.
Also, why don’t they allow for games to go on the usual three hours at least?!?
ekansssss i nervous
AND SO IT BEGINS.
THERE WE GO MARK!!
Bout damn time! I’m liking this new thread! Cmon luck!
Let’s get it motherfucker. Good shit Teix. We do this shit.
Good Mo, Span was playing no homers defense right there.
Span is SHOOK.
A-Rod is going to tie the game!!!!
Good start. Now let’s FINISH !!!!!!!
The Yankees will bring the tying run to the plate in this game.
You’re a risk-taker.
here we go AJ, Drew
Tex is a True Yankee HELL YEAH.
Alright Tex, way to get the inning started.
So, at this point, do they get the towel to start making the pie and build from there depending on what happens?
Well, at least Tex kept my beat the streak going in the MLB.com postseason fantasy game.
There ya Tex…no DP A-rod, get a HR and tie it.
Remember when we used to be doubtful, and not confident, when ARod strode to the plate in the 9th?
Yeah… good times.
… Tie it up Alex.
Give Mo a shot at winning this game.
Beautiful save by Mauer. I am feeling a win right now!
I love those numbers. I know it’s a small sample, but I love it.
Are the announcers saying Nathan is more of a choker than A-Rod?
You know what? He just might be.
Yes, Chip, because six innings determine a playoff career…
If they want to walk you Arod, take it. No outs!
Nathan is SCURRRED
IF YOU A SCURRED MOTHERFUCKA GO TO CHURCH (GO TO CHURCH)
Nice patience by Arod so far.
You think Nathan is feeling it?
Just throwing this out there because I have been so critical of Matsui, but… could he beat a Nathan slider or fastball?
I hate Chuck Meriweather. HATE him!
Very close there. Very close.
That was Ball 4.
I’ll forgive Meriwether his poor strike zone after that.
AJ and Drew how you guys feelin NOW.
Drew? I thought we’d come back the whole time homey
I know you did baby… i know you did….
just say congrats
Ha word my bad. Good shit. I’m too pumped to comprehend.
A-rod my bitch!
A-Rod just tied the game!

FUCK YEAH WOOOOOOOOOOOO
I now have the biggest man crush in the world on ARod.
What did you say last thread….about 9th inning something…lol
Reverse psychology, my friend. Because what I think and what we type here has an enormous impact on how things turn out.
A FUCKING ROD! CLUTCHNESS IS A PROBLEM FOR THE REST THE AL
Oh. My. Fucking. God.
BEST PLAYER PERIOD. Whos clutch now? Damn!

My mind is blown.
Clutch-Rod. Postseason MVP.

LOOK AT THE FUCKING SWEATDROPS BEADING DOWN NATHAN’S FACE
LOOK AT THEM
JOE NATHAN IS A SHOOK NIGGA
I FUCKING LOVE IT
yes x infinity
YOU DIDN’T BELIEVE BUT I TOLD YOU TO BELIEVE.
LOOK HOW SILLY YOU LOOK.
DON’T EVER DOUBT US AGAIN.
UNCLUTCH THIS !
Ho. Lee. Shit.
let’s end this NOW.
Who else is in the ‘pen? Ace?
Ace, Gaudin, Robertson, Marte.
Ace, DRob, Gaudin, and Marte.
Got to win it now
For all of the sensible readers here at RAB, I’d like to ask you to do the following three things:
1. Open your mouths.
2. Take a foot and bring it toward your mouths.
3. Insert foot and leave it there.
Yes Sir…. I second that
This could be the official turning point in A-Rod’s Yankee career if they pull this out
I’ll admit it, I doubted. I’m afraid I’m about to wake up, and they’ll just be returned from commercial.
“Here’s Joe Nathan to try and close it out. He’ll face 3-4-5: Teixeira, A-Rod, and Hideki Matsui.”
Rule #1 of RAB:
Listen to tommiesmithjohncarlos. He’s usually right.
Holy crap. I wish was in the Bronx right now. Holy crap…
mike, i hope you thank me for suggesting to start a new thread
Jetes and Arod: Clutch.
Just for those keeping score, that is the 15th time I have declared a loss only to see the Yankees come back.
Perhaps you should do so every game in the first inning?
A-Rod drove in ALL of the runs today.
What a clutch badass.
Nobody ever fuckin question his clutchness..never
I heart now
The Yanks didn’t quite Chase Wright-ed Joe Nathan, but I’ll take it.
Lets just win this now. No need for extra innings. I WANT SOME FUCKING PIE!
Ace in the 10th if they dont win it here right??
Yeah, I was just wondering the same thing after I peeled myself off the ceiling. We have Ace, D-Rob and Marte out there. I guess its Ace.
I just lost my voice. OMG! I LOVE this man.
Nick Swisher would love to end it, and we’ll all love to see it.
ALL HAIL A-ROD OUR GLORIOUS POSTSEASON WARRIOR KING
HE IS BECOME DEATH, DESTROYER OF WORLDS
LOOK UPON HIS MIGHTY WORKS AND DESPAIR
I think what Darling meant to say was that Nathan isnt proud of his fastball tonight.
Hard hit ball there. Didn’t get out in front enough.
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH YOU GOT LUCKY TWINS YOU GOT LUCKY
Swish doesnt have Arod strength…
Hey, Reggie, how ya been? I haven’t heard your comments in a while, say anything of interest? No?
Oh, well, welcome to the gamethread.
OMG gonna kill John Sterling.
Nick Swisher trying his best to be like A-Rod.
Joe Nathan is leaving this inning a broken man.
Alright Robbie, bases empty. Do your thing.
3 of the 5 RBIs are 2-out RBIs, the other 2 came in the 9th to tie the game. Thank Mo for this Clutch-Rod!
Cmon Robbie, no ones on base!
Kate Hudson better give A-Rod the best Bj ever!
ESPN Front Page: “Who is this Alex Rodriguez?”
Espn: Minny chokes. Dice-K goes for heroic effort. LIVE.
argh … Beckett.
Have you ever seen a closer with less confidence than Nathan. He looked he was going to cry even before A-rod. I’m not even hating on him, it was just odd. Does he always look so shook up?
I can guarantee you Joe Nathan has never been so shook in his entire career.
Arod gonna win this with a 2-out, bases loaded hit.
Damn i wish Mo didn’t give up that single to Span, A-Rod would have gotten the walk-off and that would’ve be badass
Enjoying the front page of espn.com right now…
OK, Ace, get a win.
Mo froze Nathan by having a long top of the 9th…haha.
Actually I was thinking the same thing when they were showing Nathan warming up in the pen during the 9th. BTW, Rivera >>>>>>>>>> Nathan.
Joe Nathan: Attacked by invisible Midges.
Alright, Ace is in. Let’s make this quick pretty please before I get an ulcer.
Ulcer… throw up… pool, pond
I’m still having a hard time catching my breath.
Me too. My sisters keep looking at me like Im crazy.
Are your sisters hot? Are they 18+?
This Just in…………… Arod awarded a Nobel Prize
i want posada to get pie
I still have adrenalin pumping through my veins. Wow
An A-Bomb…from A-Rod!!!! Keep it rolling, boys. Aceves needs to shut them down, and bring around the top of the order, starting with the Melkman, aka Mr. Clutch vs. the Twins!
Oh god Darling.
The mexican gangster is not a “good luck” charm.
Ace is in?
He’s totally nabbing up a win. His team-rallying ability is second to none.
Aceves is the league leader in TRAA (Team Rallies Above Average) by an astounding 5.2 teams rallied.
Lets go Gangsta.
Im worried about the upcoming Brendan Harris at bat.
Brendan Harris ain’t got shit on us.
We don’t lose ballgames. We’re the Yankees.
ACE OF SPADES!
i love alfredo aceves
Joe Nathan, I suggest stepping away from Mr. Pavano. Ahh, fuck it, stay there, bitch.
After the drama fades, did A-rod just redeem himself in the eyes of all Yankee fans or will he still need to play big in a WS?
as darling said he killed them in 04 as well before the slump started, but i think it is different this year.
Probably needs to earn 2 rings for the “what have you done for me lately” crowd.
He never needed to redeem himself in the eyes of sane Yankee fans, because we knew he was fine and would hit in October eventually.
He’ll never redeem himself in the eyes of dumb Yankee fans, because they hate him irrationally and he’ll never measure up to their nonsensical standard of greatness.
I like how the distinction is between “dumb” and “sane.”
I don’t mince words.
Am I the only one that thinking Aceves is Jim Leyritz twin brother ?
Brendan Harris’ voodoo doesn’t work in extra innings.
biggest HR of A-Rod’s career?
Nope. That will come in the 11th.
So Jeter singles in Posada for the pie? That’d be fitting
jeter only like postseason pie.
Posada hits the HR, Burnett goes to pie him and their signals get crossed so Jeter gets hit.
Nick Punto is a baseball player
Officially Official: A Rod earns his yankee pinstripes.
That took long enough, what has it been? 6 years?
He earned his pinstripes in 2004, the day he got traded here.
So the last 5 years were just an illusion, nice.
No. The last five years happened. What is an illusion is the concept of “earning” your pinstripes.
ARod is a Yankee. All Yankees earn their pinstripes simply for being Yankees and trying to help the Yankees win. ARod has been trying to help the Yankees win since 2004.
No, He got them that day. He earned them today. And I didn’t know that commenting on RAB from Kate Hudson’s uterus was possible. Nice to see.
Who is due up? I freaking lost it after the A Bomb.
melk, jorge, jete i believe.
Melky, then Jorge proves why he should always start in the postseason
please get this asshole out
C’mon Ace, fuck this Puta
these two out walks make me want to kill myself
here we go with the 2 out bullshit
did that seriously just happen again?
Fuck. What the fuck. I’m tired of this little bitch.
Get em Ace.
Yankees pitching has not recorded a 1-2-3 inning tonight. Sheesh.
nick punto is the new dustin pedroia
No, Nick Punto has a full head of hair and can ride all the rides at Great Adventure.
Need to end this inning now and end the game this inning.
My God stop it with the 2-out freakin walks to the bottom of this freakin order!!!
apparently that pitch was not up and away enough to be a strike.
WTF? Why do we have to walk this puta all the time?
Cmon Ace, one more out. No more 2-out runs please.
Da..mn. a walk to Punto?
No 1-2-3 innings for Yankees pitching tonight. Awful.
Oh STFU. Holy shit. Do you have any joy
I’m just stating the facts.
C’mon man. watch the baseball game and enjoy.
Technically, “Awful” is not a fact, it’s a judgment.
2 out baseruners story of this twins o tonight damn man
YOU’RE KILLING ME
ace, you need to get your shit together
Ump is consistently inconsistent. Awesome.
chuck merriweather is the the AJ Burnett of umpires
Throw Strikes!! These hitters couldnt hit it over the fence if they stood on 2b.
I have the biggest headache in the world and SAT’s tomorrow but I won’t miss this game for anything
I got high as hell and wasted five years ago the night before the SAT’s and scored an 1100. You got that shit.
Man. I’ve been calling it since august. Arod will come up huge this postseason along with cc.
I like to thank Jedi master tommy for bring me to the A-Rod side….tommy and Cody Ransom,
Together, Mustang, we will rule the galaxy as father and son.
Comon ACE…one more strike. You got this
This is really becoming ridiculous.
Lucky a$$ hits, man. Damn!
Damnit. Cmon please Ace. Please. Please. Puhleeeeeease!
So you go with Robertson because you need a K?
Or stick with Aceves?
There’s 2 outs. you don;t need a K.
these mothers don’t know when to stop
NO. STOP. OK? STOP IT. YES YOU. STOP.
that’s righ-NO. STOP. YOU STOP IT RIGHT NOW, Y’HEAR?
The fucking walks… they kill ya
Walking Nick Punto. I don’t get it. The guy’s a banjo hitting middle infielder.
damn these 2 out hits
I’m about to Andy Bernard my wall with these 2 out hits.
my head is about to explode
Come on Ace.
have they actually made good contact yet tonight? man is this hard to watch
He just said 2 for 3 in his career vs Aceves including the post-season which is funny considering this is his 1st at-bat vs Aceves in the post-season.
Chip Caray is truly committed to working blue.
hallelujah the yanks can win this
Good shit Ace.
YESSSSS! Time to win this shit!
good shit Ace!
thank you !!!
Anyone interested in pie?
Thank you Ace! Now, please someone get pie.
love that swish energy
Thank god! I hope they send Nathan out there again.
