Ugh, now we need the luck more than ever.
Marte out. Who’s in?
WOW. Melky’s non-catch was fair.
Who else do we have on the bench for a PH?
shit, i really don’t like marte. he’s fuckin sucked ever since he put on a yankee uniform
Inside the park double….what a Darling.
Rally caps on, boys!
Cervelli gets the game winning hit, you just wait.
So does this thread make this the most spilled-over game? The most commented-on game?
we have d-rob and gaudin left i believe
so i guess d-rob is in now
ugh, d-rob? i love him and everything, but he’s not exactly trustworthy in a spot like this. let’s hope he throws strikes
i just realized there’s like no one else left in the pen
Patience, young padawan.
It was K-Rob v. Gaudin v. Marte
AL K/9 leader FT…….
can’t say i’m surprised by marte
might have pitched in his last high leverage situation this post-season
come on d-rob!!!!
thanks for coming marte you fucking waste of a roster spot
wow! mauer got a double
We need a miracle here.
Or a boatload of K’s.
Well, Robertson, we just need three Ks. Or one and a ground ball.
this has to be the longest thread since i started posting here in may
the 15 inning game went 5 spillovers i believe
pleeeeease strike out the side! that would be ultimate badass
hey just wondering has anyone figured out yet where the hell gardner was going
I’ll take a massive dose of some of D-Rob’s strikeout right about now.
It’s lucky thong time.
Please, let D-Rob pitch better then our other relievers did.
Nice job K-rob…2 more
whoops too early
please don’t throw that again
wow, 6th spillover?
What genius move was this to take out Ace and bring in Marte? WTF?!!
That’s the first move I questioned from Girardi, just because it’s extras and I’d rather not burn the pen too quickly at this point.
That was overmanaging.
ohhhh! so lucky mauer stopped!
this is not good
not good at all
Fuck. We are done. Thank you Damon, thank you Marte.
IT’S NOT OVER YET.
Fuck, do people NEVER learn?
The Twins are like spider monkeys.
who didn’t see this coming after last inning shit why take ace out for marte of all people
Gardner got to that ball quick.
So continuing with the Star Wars reference, episode VI is The Return of the Jedi. Tex returns from this slump? ARod returns to the plate to win this one? Cmon now..Lets go yankees!
wow, that was a queer little post
we’re in a shit situation bases loaded no one out. imagine we turn a triple play???
FFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUCCCCCCCCCCCKKKKKKKKKKKK. i hate marte sooo friggin much. we need more than a miracle here
i can’t force myself to watch this game on tv any longer.
OMFG OMFG OMFG OMFG OMFG…
We need swish on the mound, pronto
Delmon Young’s just got to stri…..even better.
Oh, the Twins don’t go on line drives?
That is how you run the bases.
You think Gardner was watching how the runners reacted there?
SWEET ZOMBIE JESUS.
Tex! I came!
So thats what you’re supposed to do on a line drive.
Why do their runners freeze on linedrives but Gardner couldn’t do it?
we need some luck
Why is Cabrera always talking…i cant stand that bastard.
Please Mo, let us get a DP.
Glad we have a great defensive 1B.
lets go. DP please
Please don’t get beat by that fuck Carlos Gomez.
OMG! Tex baby!
TWO BIG OUTS BABY
Thank you Tex. Please, one more quick out.
yeah baby. one more come on
Anybody but Gomez and that is two.
Yankees defense holding strong!
Oh man. Just one more.
If Brendan Fucking Harris gets a hit here I’m going to lose my shit…
Of course it comes down to Brendan Harris.
good thing Cervelli didn’t go for Gomez, he could have thrown the ball away and a run would’ve scored
Harris of all people.
Cervelli shouldve drilled Gomez in the back, he was way out of the basepath.
Yeah, cause they would have had the balls to make that call.
Please D-Rob, please…
please D Rob!
Ok,time to retire Harris.
The last out always seem to be the toughest.
Robertson wants to K this guy. Keep that K rate up.
I need my Blood pressure meds
I don’t think Chuck even knows where his strike zone is anymore.
Is he a joke or what?
You can’t predict baseball.
D-Rob, I love you.
We got our miracle!! Can we please win it now??
are you kidding me LOL
Im going to have a heart attack…..
I’m utterly calm. You know why?
I know we’re going to win this shit. It’s in our destiny.
I Joba fist pumped!
THAT’S HOW YOU DO THAT SHIT
David Robertson is now one of Mo’s disciples
Holy motherfucking fuck.
I want my steak and blowjob right now.
that was fucking amazing
Would you settle for just being fisted by Chip Carey??
YOU’RE ABOUT TO GET THEM RIGHT HERE BUDDY
Go go D-Rob!
THAT WAS AWESOME
ROBERTSON YOU ARE THE FUCKING MAN
We gotta win this game. We gotta win this fuckin game.
This must end now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11
this game is unbelievable
Holy fucking Christ, that was HUGE!!! HUGE!
That was Houdini like.
destiny is just oozing out of this whole freakin team
I SAID FUCK YEAH!!!!!!!
Good defense all-around for Yanks as well as pitching, at least by Robertson.
Tex-Rod coming up! End this guys!
I think I woke the neighbors with that “fuck yeah”
Buy ‘em a beer, Drew. Ha!
OH MY FUCKING GOD! THANK YOU!
Bases loaded w/no outs and the Twinkies CAN’T SCORE!!!
/bursts into tears
TASTE THE HAPPY.
tastes a lot like sad…
I’d like to say: the bases were loaded while I was chatting with a Twins fan.
I log out of AIM and our miracle happens.
Tell Michele Bachmann I said hello.
Awesome work, David.
Luck. Luck. Luck.
Moonrock. Moonrock. Moonrock.
How unclutch would an ARod homer be?
David “Houdini” Robertson
This NEEDS to end now.. With the heart of our order..
THIS! IS! A! HOMEBOY!
A Rod is coming up, i feel the pre-cum all over my tip.
thats a little too descriptive man
We have to win this game. We just have to. It smells like a postseason victory, it tastes like one…it looks like one…It better be one!
d-rob you are fuckin awesome
I think the magic’s back in the Bronx. I feel like it’s 1996 all over again. Sick fucking game.
Setting up the inevitable……
It’s an A-PIE, FOR A-ROD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This team is boring.
Are we doing pies for the playoffs?
OH YES WE ARE!!!
I am so emotionally spent already too.
LET’S DO THIS! END IT NOW!!!!!!
D-Rob goes another inning. I like Gaudin but not as the last pitcher out of the pen
Mijares against Tex and A-Rod?
There’s not going to be a 12th inning, is there?
I am such a horse.
Get a hit Tex. You get a hit. We win. Get pie if you have to.
who is this scrub Mijares????
I may not live any longer, if I continue watching these yankee playoff games.
come tex time to earn your pay
Tex is MO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
TIME TO GO PUSSYTUBING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Never a doubt
I had a little in the 6th, but I think it was just gas.
That was a quickie.
Twins hearts are dead!!!!!!!!!
to do: pick up a case of adult diapers for the Yankees post season
I was about to post that Mijares has given up 7 HRs in 61 IP.
There’s #8 bitchez
TEX IS MO !!!!!!!
Brian Cashman is the happiest Jew this side of my Grandpa’s house.
D-ROB deserves the pie just as much as TEX!!!
I FUCKING LOVE THIS TEAM!!!!!
THIS!! IS! A! HOMEBOYYYYYY!!!!!!!!
Mo. I don’t know how I’ll ever sleep tonight. My heart is beating so damned fast.
never lose faith fellas. we the best
That was a Joe Carter-esque rocket.
Even I could feel that fisting by Tex.
Really? You have to work blue?
TEX! TEX! TEX!
did anyone catch Mijares with tears in his eyes?
OOhhhh and BTW………Game Of The Year!
NUMBER ONE TEX.
Aaaaaand pie in the face
Boom goes the Pie-nyamite!
Who still wants Manny?
WHAT DID I TELL YOU?
DID I TELL YOU WE WERE WINNING?
WHEN WILL YOU START BELIEVING WITH ME?
I’ve been with you the whole time. Never doubted.
Same, same, not for one second.
These motherfuckers know who they are and what they did.
They’ll learn eventually.
THEY ARE WHO WE THOUGHT THEY WERE!
Confidence level: ORGASM
true Yankees fans never stop believing
If you stop believing in this team then you have not been watching this team. Go Yanks !!!!!!!!!!!!!
was that Tex’s first pie? i think i heard AJ say that
That game made me cry through my penis.
I will be quoting this for a long time to come sir. lol
lol my wife even found that funny.
I dont think those are tears…
See a doctor.
That just sounds painful…lol
I met a girl who made me feel like that once.
Turns out I just had chlamydia.
hmmm how long til the media talks smack about A-Rod taking Tex’s tv time??
I want a copy of this shit on DVD.
Plus forever and ever.
Im gonna celebrate with two Ukrainian hookers and a T-Bone steak
Son, unless you snort some coke off her rack, it’s not a party.
Klemy, I want to party with you. You’re my kind of guy.
I’ll be Steve Martin, you can be Dan Akroyd.
oh…..Itll be a PARTY
Umm, can I get the number of the Ukrainians?
All you haters suck.
WE”RE NOT THE FUCKING TIGERS BITCH
Start picking out ring designs, Cashman. We’re winning the whole guacamole.
Now I’m starvin.
“DID YOU SAY NO GUACAMOLE? THAT’S BUSH LEAGUE!”
i looooooooooooooooooove the yankess
That was spectacular.
I would like thank the good lord for making me a yankee fan.
2 down, 9 to go.
“We Play Today, We Win Today. Das it.”
Yes, my brother!
GAME OF THE YEAR!
Not only did we walk this one off, but the Red Sox were shunned to the second best station for three innings.
Capitalizing on lucky breaks really helps make a team champions. They did it in the 90s, and are doing it again now.
from Jeffery Mayer to Phil Cousy
Tex made this household happy! Never say die!
A-Rod: “We love each other and we play every day.”
There you have it, the secret to the 2009 Yankees’ success: Love.
Hey, are you gonna argue with John Lennon? (Whose b-day it is today, btw.)
Love, and gigantic cocks and balls.
Because we’re men. Manlier men that the rest of these pussies.
That’s only half. The playing baseball every day is important too.
Gardenhire got it wrong before the series. Turns out the Yankees is the team full of baseball players.
You mean there’s not a mutiny in the clubhouse? I seem to remember reading that somewhere today.
Mutiny is the new all-male club beneath Yankee Stadium…
That’s a shot at Jeter.
No shots, but also no mutiny, you know?
It was a goofy thing to say, but maybe all you need is love.
Oh, A-Rod, never stop being you.
(Girardi promised the guys hookers in the hot tub next year if they take it all.)
unbelievable. biggest rush since aaron boone
i love this team
god, these yanks feel sooooo good
i’m so fuckin happy i don’t even know what to say
Say, You’re sorry you were so negative, and you know now what rhymes with “barley.”
i’m sorry i littered rab with forms of the word “fuck” and i’m sorry that you’re crazy enough to actually care. i believe the first thing you posted after big tex’s HR was “fuck the haters”.
heh yepp. I could give two shits if you curse. That wasn’t the point Mr. Charlie.
Nobody was upset at your cursing. We were upset at your lack of perspective and wisdom. We were upset at your overreactions and your vitriol directed at members of this team who are doing their best to win this ballgame, which they did.
The cursing is not the issue. The impatience and lack of faith and historical memory is the issue.
We were upset not at the cursing, but at the overreactions in these comments.
Nobody cares that you cursed. We were offended that you:
A.) smeared Girardi for being an idiot for not bringing in Mo, even though bringing in Mo would have been the WRONG move and bringing in Joba and then Coke was totally the RIGHT move, and the subsequent chain of events that transpired after your comment backs that up;
B.) called Mariano Rivera a “dumb shit” because he didn’t immediately get an out and gave up a run; he’s the best postseason closer ever, and frankly you don’t have much of a right to be upset when the best player to do what he does EVER doesn’t succeed; Mariano has earned your respect, deference, and gratitude;
C.) claimed that people who didn’t overreact and fly off at the handle like you weren’t “real Yankee fans” and “didn’t care” like you did, which is just all sorts of ignorantly rude, self-centered, immature, inflammatory, assholish, counterproductive, anti-intellectual, and flat-out wrong;
D.) chided other fans for continuing to be confident, even though the game was still very early and we had plenty of valid reasons to remain confident because we understood the abilities of our team, the weaknesses of the opposing team, and the historical record better than you did, as was borne out both by your irrational and foolish in retrospect comments and by the final outcome.
THAT’S what we got on your case for, Charlie. Not for saying “fuck”. I could give two fucks in you say fuck. I love saying fuck. Fuck rocks. Being a belligerent, thickheaded, dour, reactionary, screaming dolt does not rock.
I accepted your apology, but it looks like you weren’t apologizing for what you should have been apologizing for.
I know what to say. You don’t get to party tonight. People out there better watch out for me tonight, especially since its a Friday. I’m going to be fuckin HYPER!
That was the best pie of the year(so far). Same shit different day.
We the best!
Hahah Fuck yeah, I am so pumpeeeeeeeeddddddddd.
Now when we do this in the ALCS against the Sux, that will be EPIC.
f the posada-molina controvesy, YANKEES WIN!!!!
Seriously, Cashman’s agent should be on the phone tonight. It’s early and he had lots of dough to spend. But, his guys have been cleaning up so far.
On espn.com: “Mark Teixiera’s blast in the 11th beat the Twins 4-3 in Game 2 of the NLDS.” That must’ve been SOME home run!
That’s how fuckin dominant this team is. We win games in the other league that we didn’t even play in.
This game was a World Series Playoff Preview.
We are winning games for Torre, so we can beat his Bigelow tea sipping ass in the fall classic.
I caught that mistake too
The cross-league variety
That’s just how good this team is…they’re now winning series in two leagues!
The National League has already surrendered.
That’s a wise decision.
They can’t beat us. NOBODY CAN BEAT US.
There threads are my support group for high tension postseason play. /tear
My bill is in the mail.
GAME OF THE YEAR
Did A-Rod take steroids? I can’t seem to remember
I can see they are not the ones that Ortiz takes so that’s a plus.
Nah,it’S Kate Hudson Pussy that’s giving him that extra edge.
A-Rod’s got an….Edge?
Jesus, I need a drink
How about 40 shots of Captain Morgan
One for each Tex Message this year.
I like the way you think, Captain.
You, me, and Klemy, we’re hitting the town.
This is like the 2007 ALDS, except the exact opposite.
Think about it.
I love that this season when Alex gets big hits, he looks to his team with those fist pumps. He’s a new man this season.
The Yankees are unbelievable. Never say die. They are going all the way to #27.
You ain’t neva lie.
It’s gonna happen!
Me: the choir
second best game, behind game 4 in ’96. Leyritz ends Wohlers career and a dynasty is born.
Don’t forget the 1978 Bucky Bleeping Dent Home Run Victory against the Bosox. That was a sweet win.
When Posada hit the bloop in the 10th, was everyone else reminded of the bloop in 2003 off Pedro?
Sorry, that game 7 in 2003 was the best game ever. Then game 4 in ’96. This one’s in the top ten for me. But, I’m only 32.
Oh I agree. Game 7 is such a great memory for me. I actually remember most of the details of the day.
Just woke up from 9th inning coma…Did.that.just.happen?
Tex baby yeah!!!
Turns out, we aren’t only better on paper.
D-Rob needs a good lay for his escape tonight. Who’s setting this man up tonight?!?
OUR LITTLE ROOKIE IS GETTING SOME NOOKIE!!!!!
best line ever from Chip Caray: The Yankees walk off with reckless abandon!! I love it.
Oh man. Pavano got a fucking shit storm heading his way.
ietcvm – Pavano can’t catch a break when it comes to the Yankees.
Now, if we can destroy Carl Pavano Sunday…I will be so happy.
I don’t want to hear no muthafuckin “If”s.
You speak the truth.
That’s all I ever do. Eventually, people learn.
I’m glad it didn’t take you as long as some others, Bob. You’re my boy.
Heh. You can be a real prick sometimes. But you’re okay in my book.
Plus don’t forget that I have been at 9 confidence level almost all season excep for two weeks early in the year at 8 and about four weeks at 10.
Like I said, Bob, you’re good money. Always have been.
Thanks Tommie. We can stop the mutual admiration society now. My ego is pumped up enough. LOL.
This is assuming he makes it to Sunday uninjured.
he only gets injured when hes stealing Georges money
Maybe Hal should send him a check.
Very funny but sadly true.
Highly possible that he’ll break something while he’s taking a dump. I say he has some major anal fissure and he pitches with a bloody hole, almost like Schilling’s bloody sock.
It’s a celebration bitches
I’m sorry A-rod but the Texicutioner had the best Home run of all … this series.
Andy’s gonna be all dynastic on Sunday.
I just thought up the perfect name for the Twins: MERCY FLUSH! AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!
I would like to thank Mo for crappy umpiring and clutch hitting. Amen.
The umping was truly awful – both ways.
Frequent reader, rare poster here…has there been a game this year that was that much of a roller coaster? I went from loving baseball to hating my love of baseball about 73 times tonight.
The 15 inning victory over the BoSox was as tense but not as much roller coaster.
k-hud must have a magic pussy
love that tex had the walkoff so the couldn’t make him the new “arod”
I was thinking the same thing. It’s great. That’ll keep him looser for the rest of the playoffs.
Not to mention the huge, rally-starting hit in the ninth. You can’t get much more clutch than he and A-Rod were tonight.
Late to the party, but I just wanted to add a FUCK YEAH. I love the balls shown by D-rob tonight and Big Tex showing up. Have fun people an keep it X-rated.
Thanks Tommie, I needed that. You succeeded in pissing off my little lady which I consider a solid bonus.
Now if only we can see a successful debut for Braylon on Sunday, but I won’t hold my breath.
Oh, and: It’s the Dolphins. We got this shit, bro.
Ummm.. + fucking one!
Jesus ESPN can’t believe about the Mauer call. Let it go for christ sakes.
The Mauer call blows, but I can’t feel bad for the Twins after we got jobbed by that horrible magical strike zone all night long.
So right, dude. Mauer’s ball was totally fair, but the Yanks don’t make the calls, and they got out of a crazy jam after that. All they can do is make the most of what they’re handed.
ESPN can suck it, which I’m sure they’ll gladly do. They can hug each other and cry about it all they want.
Also, to any Twins fan who feels like it sucks to have bad call cheat you out of a run late in a big game: Brandon Inge, Jim Leyland and the Tigers say hello…
Ughh… I hate when comments disappear into the RAB universe.
Charlie, You said F Mo, which is wild. You told someone who said “I’m still confident,” “You shouldn’t be.” Finally, you said the game really sucked. Which, it obviously turned out to be awesome.
This is truly a David vs. Goliath match-up. To see a cool visual of the payroll disparity between these 2 teams, check out a new baseball blog called Visual Baseball.
Goliath should always win.
They play in an old ass shitty stadium and how much do we pay them in rev sharing? Please. They traded one of the best pitchers in baseball for Carlos Gomez, that’s the real issue here; management, not payroll.
Stadium? That’s not a fucking Stadium. It’s a fucking over-size baggie with air-conditioning.
Are you saying they’re not a well-run organization? Yeah, the got a shitty return on the Santana deal, but for poor management may I refer you to the Royals?
Fuck the Twins. They’re receiving like $20 mil a year or thereabouts, and there’s no reason Pohlad can’t increase payroll.
The Twins owner volunteerd his club for contraction to take the fat cash payment.
Keep that in mind.
He was offered the choice of A) Taking a one-time cash payout or B) refusing to COMMIT EUTHANASIA ON HIS OWN TEAM, THUS RIPPING OUT THE HEARTS OF MILLIONS OF BASEBALL FANS, and he chose the cash-payout + the murder of his own team.
Oh, I remember that farce. Props to Twins management for consistently fielding an excellent ballclub in spite of ownership’s best efforts.
See my comment just below. They just look at it like any other investment like a stock or bond or money market fund. They only care how to get the best return. So they were quite willing to blow up the franchise for a few bucks. They have never acted like stewards of the franchise, its fans, the city or anything else one expects responsibility-wise from enlightened ownership. It’s always come down to the last buck and the best return for the Pohlads.
In a related story, I love George Steinbrenner and his sons. They’re awesome.
Management have done a pretty good with what their very rich skin-flint, dirt cheap ownership has given them. The Pohlad’s just never wanted to win at any cost like the Steinbrenners. They just run the club like any of their other businesses. Make a profit. Winning be damend.
Johan Santana deal= Failure.
That’s just not an option when you try to save 5 cents on a can of tuna.
That’s how the Pohlad’s got so rich. All those nickels add up over the years.
I am so fucking happy I got to go to this game.
