    Guys, we weren’t born to follow.

    Close, it also rhymes with Marley!

    Its gotta be gnarly, no?

  3. Matty Ice says:

    Tex/ARod/Matsui are 14-29 off Nathan…..I think we’ll tag him. Will it be enough? We’ll see.

    (butamatsuiwalkoffwouldbesweet).

  4. pete says:

    Swisher sucks on D
    /Detractors’d

  5. Gregorio says:

    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

  6. Jackson says:

    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.

  7. A-Rod and Kate Hudson have sex in the bleachers after the game says:

    TEIX, THIS WILL BE THE MOST IMPORTANT AT BAT AS A YANKEE FOR YOU. Earn your stripes.

  8. Dave says:

    Luck Luck Luck!

  9. AJ says:

    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.

  10. mustang says:

    here we go…let the fun start

  11. DreDog says:

    I think a Swish walk off would be sweet considering he played some good defense today. He also wears pie well.

  12. I hate all the ads in the postseason. They’re so annoying!

  13. Accent Shallow says:

    Hoping for pie-related activities.

  14. Marc says:

    I can has some pie?

  15. Riddering says:

    LET’S GO YANKEES.

  16. Double-J says:

    KNOCK ON WOOD, rally caps boys!!!

  17. Salty Buggah says:

    Nice catch Swish…now please get a hit Tex.

  18. Also, why don’t they allow for games to go on the usual three hours at least?!?

  19. pete says:

    ekansssss i nervous

  20. Doug says:

    AND SO IT BEGINS.

  21. Marc says:

    Bout damn time! I’m liking this new thread! Cmon luck!

  22. pete says:

    yay
    c’mon a-rod

  23. Drew says:

    Let’s get it motherfucker. Good shit Teix. We do this shit.

  24. Mike Axisa says:

    Good Mo, Span was playing no homers defense right there.

  25. E-ROC says:

    A-Rod is going to tie the game!!!!

  26. PrintScreen says:

    Arod.cmon boy.

  27. Mouch "Half Man Half Couch" says:

    Good start. Now let’s FINISH !!!!!!!

  28. Accent Shallow says:

    The Yankees will bring the tying run to the plate in this game.

  29. mustang says:

    here we go AJ, Drew

  30. Riddering says:

    Tex is a True Yankee HELL YEAH.

  31. AJ says:

    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?

  32. BigBlueAL says:

    Well, at least Tex kept my beat the streak going in the MLB.com postseason fantasy game. :-)

  33. Salty Buggah says:

    There ya Tex…no DP A-rod, get a HR and tie it.

  34. Remember when we used to be doubtful, and not confident, when ARod strode to the plate in the 9th?

    Yeah… good times.

  35. Reggie C. says:

    Aww fuck.

    … Tie it up Alex.

    Give Mo a shot at winning this game.

  36. Beautiful save by Mauer. I am feeling a win right now!

  37. AJ says:

    I love those numbers. I know it’s a small sample, but I love it.

  38. Accent Shallow says:

    Are the announcers saying Nathan is more of a choker than A-Rod?

  39. Yes, Chip, because six innings determine a playoff career…

  40. PrintScreen says:

    If they want to walk you Arod, take it. No outs!

  41. BigBlueAL says:

    Nice patience by Arod so far.

  42. Doug says:

    You think Nathan is feeling it?

  43. charlespoet says:

    Just throwing this out there because I have been so critical of Matsui, but… could he beat a Nathan slider or fastball?

  44. I hate Chuck Meriweather. HATE him!

  45. AJ says:

    Very close there. Very close.

  46. mustang says:

    AJ and Drew how you guys feelin NOW.

  47. Salty Buggah says:

    A-rod my bitch!

  48. Accent Shallow says:

  89. Jersey says:

    let’s end this NOW.

    Who else is in the ‘pen? Ace?

  91. Jake H says:

    Got to win it now

  92. AJ says:

    Hey trolls,
    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.

    Thank you.

  93. Chip says:

    This could be the official turning point in A-Rod’s Yankee career if they pull this out

  94. Accent Shallow says:

    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.”

  95. Ryan says:

    Holy crap. I wish was in the Bronx right now. Holy crap…

  96. ashish says:

    mike, i hope you thank me for suggesting to start a new thread :)

  97. ansky says:

    I’m hard.

  98. PrintScreen says:

    Jetes and Arod: Clutch.

  99. charlespoet says:

    Just for those keeping score, that is the 15th time I have declared a loss only to see the Yankees come back.

  100. JobaWockeeZ says:

    A-Rod drove in ALL of the runs today.
    What a clutch badass.

  101. Stadium Garlic Fries says:

    Nobody ever fuckin question his clutchness..never

  102. pete says:

    I heart now

  103. E-ROC says:

    The Yanks didn’t quite Chase Wright-ed Joe Nathan, but I’ll take it.

  104. Klemy says:

    Lets just win this now. No need for extra innings. I WANT SOME FUCKING PIE!

  105. BigBlueAL says:

    Ace in the 10th if they dont win it here right??

  106. A-Rod and Kate Hudson have sex in the bleachers after the game says:

    I just lost my voice. OMG! I LOVE this man.

  107. AJ says:

    Nick Swisher would love to end it, and we’ll all love to see it.

  108. Doug says:

    ALL HAIL A-ROD OUR GLORIOUS POSTSEASON WARRIOR KING

    HE IS BECOME DEATH, DESTROYER OF WORLDS

    LOOK UPON HIS MIGHTY WORKS AND DESPAIR

  109. BigBlueAL says:

    I think what Darling meant to say was that Nathan isnt proud of his fastball tonight.

  110. Jake H says:

    Hard hit ball there. Didn’t get out in front enough.

  111. OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH YOU GOT LUCKY TWINS YOU GOT LUCKY

  112. Reggie C. says:

    Swish doesnt have Arod strength…

    Aw well.

  113. Will says:

    OMG gonna kill John Sterling.

  114. Doug says:

    Nick Swisher trying his best to be like A-Rod.

    Joe Nathan is leaving this inning a broken man.

  115. Accent Shallow says:

    Alright Robbie, bases empty. Do your thing.

  116. PrintScreen says:

    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!

  117. Alex S says:

    Kate Hudson better give A-Rod the best Bj ever!

  118. ROBTEN says:

    ESPN Front Page: “Who is this Alex Rodriguez?”

    Um…Your Daddy?

  119. jjhammer31 says:

    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?

  120. PrintScreen says:

    Arod gonna win this with a 2-out, bases loaded hit.

  121. Alex S says:

    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

  122. Will says:

    Enjoying the front page of espn.com right now…

  123. Salty Buggah says:

    OK, Ace, get a win.

  124. Mike bk says:

    Mo froze Nathan by having a long top of the 9th…haha.

    • Eric S says:

      Actually I was thinking the same thing when they were showing Nathan warming up in the pen during the 9th. BTW, Rivera >>>>>>>>>> Nathan.

  125. Matty Ice says:

    Joe Nathan: Attacked by invisible Midges.

  126. Will says:

    Alright, Ace is in. Let’s make this quick pretty please before I get an ulcer.

  127. Drew says:

    I’m still having a hard time catching my breath.

  128. trueblue says:

    This Just in…………… Arod awarded a Nobel Prize

  129. dkidd says:

    i want posada to get pie

  130. A-Rod is my dad says:

    I still have adrenalin pumping through my veins. Wow

  131. Double-J says:

    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!

  132. Reggie C. says:

    Oh god Darling.

    The mexican gangster is not a “good luck” charm.

  133. pete says:

    c’mon ace

  134. Riddering says:

    Ace is in?

    He’s totally nabbing up a win. His team-rallying ability is second to none.

  135. BigBlueAL says:

    Lets go Gangsta.

  136. Jackson says:

    Im worried about the upcoming Brendan Harris at bat.

  137. Doug says:

    ACE OF SPADES!

  138. Charlie says:

    i love alfredo aceves

  139. Drew says:

    Joe Nathan, I suggest stepping away from Mr. Pavano. Ahh, fuck it, stay there, bitch.

  140. jjhammer31 says:

    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?

  141. sal says:

    Am I the only one that thinking Aceves is Jim Leyritz twin brother ?

  142. Accent Shallow says:

    Brendan Harris’ voodoo doesn’t work in extra innings.

  143. Alex S says:

    biggest HR of A-Rod’s career?

  144. Chip says:

    So Jeter singles in Posada for the pie? That’d be fitting

  145. Jackson says:

    Nick Punto is a baseball player

  146. A-Rod is my dad says:

    Officially Official: A Rod earns his yankee pinstripes.

    That took long enough, what has it been? 6 years?

  147. Mouch "Half Man Half Couch" says:

    Who is due up? I freaking lost it after the A Bomb.

  148. Mike says:

    please get this asshole out

  149. Drew says:

    C’mon Ace, fuck this Puta

  150. Dela G says:

    these two out walks make me want to kill myself

  151. Mike says:

    here we go with the 2 out bullshit

  152. pete says:

    did that seriously just happen again?

  153. Drew says:

    Fuck. What the fuck. I’m tired of this little bitch.

  154. Accent Shallow says:

    Yankees pitching has not recorded a 1-2-3 inning tonight. Sheesh.

  155. dkidd says:

    nick punto is the new dustin pedroia

  156. Jake H says:

    Need to end this inning now and end the game this inning.

  157. BigBlueAL says:

    My God stop it with the 2-out freakin walks to the bottom of this freakin order!!!

  158. Matty Ice says:

    apparently that pitch was not up and away enough to be a strike.

  159. Salty Buggah says:

    WTF? Why do we have to walk this puta all the time?

    Cmon Ace, one more out. No more 2-out runs please.

  160. A-Rod is ESPN's daddy says:

    Da..mn. a walk to Punto?

  161. Brazilian Yankee says:

    No 1-2-3 innings for Yankees pitching tonight. Awful.

  162. cjc says:

    2 out baseruners story of this twins o tonight damn man

  163. Riddering says:

    YOU’RE KILLING ME

    /constanza’d

  164. Dela G says:

    ace, you need to get your shit together

    pretty please

  165. E-ROC says:

    Ump is consistently inconsistent. Awesome.

  166. BigBlueAL says:

    Throw Strikes!! These hitters couldnt hit it over the fence if they stood on 2b.

  167. Manimal says:

    I have the biggest headache in the world and SAT’s tomorrow but I won’t miss this game for anything

  168. Lefty says:

    Man. I’ve been calling it since august. Arod will come up huge this postseason along with cc.

  169. mustang says:

    I like to thank Jedi master tommy for bring me to the A-Rod side….tommy and Cody Ransom,
    lol

  170. Brazilian Yankee says:

    Comon ACE…one more strike. You got this

  171. BigBlueAL says:

    This is really becoming ridiculous.

  172. E-ROC says:

    Lucky a$$ hits, man. Damn!

  173. Salty Buggah says:

    Damnit. Cmon please Ace. Please. Please. Puhleeeeeease!

  174. Accent Shallow says:

    So you go with Robertson because you need a K?

    Or stick with Aceves?

  175. mustang says:

    these mothers don’t know when to stop

  176. pete says:

    NO. STOP. OK? STOP IT. YES YOU. STOP.
    that’s righ-NO. STOP. YOU STOP IT RIGHT NOW, Y’HEAR?

  177. trueblue says:

    The fucking walks… they kill ya

  178. Dela G says:

    damn these 2 out hits

    fucking a

  179. Matty Ice says:

    I’m about to Andy Bernard my wall with these 2 out hits.

  180. Mike says:

    my head is about to explode

  181. whozat says:

    *sigh*

    Come on Ace.

  182. cjc says:

    have they actually made good contact yet tonight? man is this hard to watch

  183. BigBlueAL says:

    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.

  184. Accent Shallow says:

    Chip Caray is truly committed to working blue.

  185. Dela G says:

    hallelujah the yanks can win this

  186. Doug says:

    …and exhale.

  187. Drew says:

    Good shit Ace.

  188. Brazilian Yankee says:

    YESSSSS! Time to win this shit!

  189. Ian says:

  190. mustang says:

  191. Accent Shallow says:

    Thank you Ace! Now, please someone get pie.

  193. Souter Fell says:

  194. DreDog says:

    Thank god! I hope they send Nathan out there again.
