  1. Camilo Gerardo - your inception? fuck perception, go with what makes sense says:

    too long indeed

  2. JobaWockeeZ says:

    I sooo want Windows 7.

    • JMK aka The Overshare says:

      I know of more fun ways to catch a virus. Most involve a bar.

    • e mills says:

      I don’t like that commercial, solely for the reason they knock XP. XP was a great OS which I still use

      • Mike Axisa says:

        I had Vista, but my machine crashed entirely. Had to go back to XP to get it working again.

        • JobaWockeeZ says:

          How old is your computer? I think it mainly has to do with age.

          But regardless the reviews of Windows 7 says it’s much much better than Vista.

        • Windows ME and Windows Vista were nothing but beta-testing versions of Windows XP and Windows 7 (respectively) that Microsoft released to the public to move product and generate income.

          I used to sell computers at Best Buy. We’d always ask people what system they were currently running when they came in. When they said they were running Windows ME, my guys would say “Sir/Madam, I feel obligated to tell you you should buy this computer as soon as possible, because Windows ME is, beyond the shadow of a doubt, the single worst piece of computer software ever known to man.”

    • Joey says:

      I got it, people calling it “Vista done right” are on point. Not too many major improvements, but all the little things are much better

  3. ansky says:

    Time to slow Lee down.

  4. Jersey says:

    Quick inning. Nice bounceback.

    Keep the faith, gents.

  5. Drew says:

    Are we ever going to score!!11??

    /ALCS Game 6 3rd inning’d

  6. charlespoet says:

    12 inches of snow already shoveled today here in Colorado. Fantastic.

    • Salty Buggah says:

      Hehe, I just came inside after shoveling too.

      I’m hoping that since its snowed so much already, class is cancelled tomorrow. It was cancelled after 2 today so I’m really hoping. I have a huge test tomorrow so I need it.

  7. Quikksand says:

    alright bats, get it going!

  8. The Artist says:

    An inning and a half for one thread?

    Must be a record.

  9. Moshe Mandel says:

    Just like that, CC at a manageable 34 pitches.

  10. FEAR IS IN THE HOUSE!

  11. Salty Buggah says:

    Cmon A-Rod.

    Get this shit going.

  12. Dela G says:

    cmon a-rod!

  13. Souter Fell says:

    alright Arod, get the first WS hit

  14. Riddering says:

    No pitcher has ever been perfect in the first inning before.

    Lee is setting records!

    Oh…wait.

  15. Tampa Yankee says:

    Joe Buck really doesn’t hide his dislike for the Yanks does he?

  16. Dela G says:

    damn i thought alex may have had that

  17. Reggie C. says:

    Good rip Alex.

    Now keep it fair.

  18. cjc says:

    boy it looks way nasty

  19. Dela G says:

    damn

    lee is filthy

  20. Manimal says:

    A game thread an inning?

  21. Lee is fucking dealing.

  22. JMK aka The Overshare says:

    Lee looks really good today. Give him credit.

  23. Buddy says:

    Cliff Lee looks nasty… oh, sorry… not allowed to say that here.

    Can only give credit to Yankee players.

    Go Yanks!

  24. Salty Buggah says:

    Damn, good pitch.

  25. cjc says:

    razor sharp I guess IMO he has gotten away with 3 guys swinging through a hanging cutter

  26. Arman Tamzarian says:

    It looks like shit there,

  27. danny says:

    ugh the weather is just horrible

  28. e mills says:

    rain should be a disadvantage to Lee on his curve right? I’m not sure how much he uses it though

  29. Dela G says:

    aight, the yanks need to foul off some pitches

  30. Souter Fell says:

    dont look too fun out there

  31. Ivan says:

    Tough start from the offense .

  32. The Artist says:

    If you’re in the NYC area, is it raining by you?

    I’m in Bayside and there isn’t a drop.

  33. JMK aka The Overshare says:

    Alright, there we go!

  34. Dela G says:

    posada!!

    great job

  35. Tampa Yankee says:

    HIP HIP

  36. Souter Fell says:

    He is human?!

  37. Someone got a hit off of Cliff Lee?! The world of Buck and McCarver is shattered. SHATTERED!

  38. Hall and Nokes says:

    Players will try to jerk one.

  39. danny says:

    FISTED!

  40. Riddering says:

    HIP HIP.

    That’s what I’m talking about.

  41. Mike Axisa says:

    ZOMG Lee is coming unraveled!!1

  42. Dela G says:

    jeez, looks like a monsoon at home plate

  43. JobaWockeeZ says:

    Even if they don’t score off Lee they just need to get to that bullpen. I wouldn’t mind Brad Lidge coming in.

  44. JMK aka The Overshare says:

    Not a strike.

  45. Salty Buggah says:

    No chasing Hideki!

  46. Can we talk about how bad Posada is in the postseason?

  47. Reggie C. says:

    Rain delay headed our way?

    Looks like rains have picked up since first pitch.

  48. Pasqua says:

    Because FOX has decided to fellate Cliff Lee following every pitch, has anyone here noticed that he’s missing his spot on almost every pitch?

    • Reggie C. says:

      Dude has K’d four.

      He’s having a dominant start to this start.

      • Pasqua says:

        Nope. I beg to differ. If you have a chance to look back at the Jeter, Tex and Arod K’s, look where the pitch is supposed to be and where it actually ends up. I realize the result is great, but the location is not.

    • Arman Tamzarian says:

      It seems like it

  49. Dela G says:

    wow that curve is filthy

    it looks like a fastball, then just drops out of sight

  50. charlespoet says:

    Matsui is just a lost cause.

    • JobaWockeeZ says:

      Yeah right. He’s terribad.

      • charlespoet says:

        mm, maybe not terribad, but definitely terrible. He just doesn’t have it anymore. But that has been my position all year, so whatever dude.

        • But that has been my position all year, so whatever dude.

          Are you not willing to let the evidence convince you that your position is wrong? Because the evidence compiled in 2009 says your preconceived position is wrong.

          Hideki Matsui may be done for 2010, that’s a position that’s a reasonable one to take (because you don’t think he can keep it up), but for 2009, HazMat is most definitely NOT done NOR terrible.

  51. Dela G says:

    wow, made matsui look like a school girl

  52. Hideki swung at balls three and four for strikes two and three.

  53. Riddering says:

    At least he didn’t ground to first!

  54. Ghost of Scott Brosius says:

    Wow i havent actually watched lee in a while. This guy is nasty

  55. ROBTEN says:

    Who at Fox thought it was a innovative idea that a pitch slows down as it reaches the plate?

  56. Esteban says:

    poop

  57. Camilo Gerardo - your inception? fuck perception, go with what makes sense says:

    oh, NT robi

  58. ansky says:

    Well there goes the perfect game. Is that a tear in Joe Buck’s eye?

  59. e mills says:

    27-33 lee and sabathia on pitchs…not too bad of a difference

  60. Quikksand says:

    2 innings, and it’s a pitchers duel

  61. Well, at least Cano hit it hard. Keep knocking it like that and they’ll fall eventually.

  62. Dela G says:

    lee looks damn good

    we need CC to match him pitch for pitch, because it doesnt look like lee is going anywhere

  63. AJ says:

    They didn’t score, but at least this team started to get to the Lee a little bit. C’mon CC, another quick inning here.

  64. Salty Buggah says:

    Ah damn. Hard hit by Cano though, so we’ll get to him.

  65. Yankeefan91 Arod fan says:

    Holyyyyyy crap im gonna be a father.

  66. Ivan says:

    Iiight CC, just keep pitching well.

  67. Russell NY says:

    Cliff Lee has a career 3.97 ERA…

  68. Salty Buggah says:

    I love that song so much. I start my day off everyday by listening to that.

  69. I’ve actually never listened to “Empire State of Mind” in its entirety but it annoys me to no end.

  70. Dela G says:

    i love alicia keys

    a lot

    like i would do mean things to her [/pat’d

  71. Salty Buggah says:

    @yesmichaelkay: Hey fans! So close for Cliff Lee. Now, let’s see if he’s rattled by losing the perfect game.

    HAHA!

  72. cjc says:

    not exactly sure whats different tonight but these guys seem to be spiting on his slider

  73. Dela G says:

    cc needs to get that outside corner going so he can use the change

  74. Ain’t no thing for Melky.

  75. Dela G says:

    MELKY RANGE!

  76. Arman Tamzarian says:

    Melky!!!

  77. rob says:

    yea melky!!!!

  78. Souter Fell says:

    i pooped a lil

  79. cjc says:

    not hit well enough I’d say

  80. JobaWockeeZ says:

    Ha Buck thought it was a homer.

  81. Ivan says:

    Range!!!

  82. TJ says:

    Nice Melky!

  83. Mike Axisa says:

    Joe Buck got a little too excited there.

  84. ShuutoHeat says:

    MELKMAN!!!!!! BEAAAAAUTIFUL

  85. Riddering says:

    MAMA HUEVOS! That was well caught.

  86. Rey22 says:

    That scared me for a moment.

  87. Joey says:

    But teh BANDBOX!?!?!?!

  88. Camilo Gerardo - your inception? fuck perception, go with what makes sense says:

    it’s only a hitter’s park to RF, jimmy

  89. Dela G says:

    FINALLY!! someone swings at the slider!

  90. Tampa Yankee says:

    What’s an electric personality?

  91. Mike Axisa says:

    Throw Victorino another change. He’s cheatin’ like a mofo.

    • Camilo Gerardo - your inception? fuck perception, go with what makes sense says:

      or just overpower him on the outside, but now he’ll cheat even more than a mofo next ab

  92. Camilo Gerardo - your inception? fuck perception, go with what makes sense says:

    that 1-0 had some sink to it, mang

  93. That’s twice they’ve mentioned Victorino’s grand slam. I say they get at least one more drop of that.

  94. JobaWockeeZ says:

    They’re not biting.

  95. Dela G says:

    i like the ground ball outs

    very good

  96. TJ says:

    The Phillies lineup really does scare the crap out of me

  97. Dela G says:

    there is no way you get to philly in 2 hours from nyc unless you take the train on express

    no car can get there… haha

  98. Peedlum says:

    didn’t we already see this at-bat? i hate reruns in the world series.

  99. Salty Buggah says:

    You encourage pitchers to shake you off? Never heard that before.

  100. Reggie C. says:

    You gotta dive for that Alex !!

    Crush the camera man. Get the ball!

  101. Ivan says:

    Man Utley is tough

  102. Dela G says:

    damn you and your patience utley

  103. JMK aka The Overshare says:

    Pitch count is really getting up there.

  104. ansky says:

    too many pitches for CC so far…i’m getting concerned.

  105. Alright, Utley. You’er starting to piss me off.

  106. Bob says:

    Spillover thread ALREADY??? THE GAME JUST STARTED. PLEASE, GET A BETTER WEB SERVER NEXT SEASON!

  107. YankeeScribe says:

    50 PITCHES??!!

  108. Camilo Gerardo - your inception? fuck perception, go with what makes sense says:

    stay the crouch, jorge

  109. Salty Buggah says:

    Damn you Utley! Get out already and stop wasting pitches.

  110. Jay says:

    Here we go with the pitch counts.

    Barf.

  111. Quikksand says:

    phillies making cc labor

  112. Dela G says:

    shit

    utley got that good

  113. Yankeefan91 Arod fan says:

    fuck

  114. Pasqua says:

    Holy shit, Utley’s a tenacious motherfucker.

  115. Cy Farnsworth says:

    what an at bat by utley. you can’t say he didn’t earn that one.

  116. Brazilian Yankee says:

    That sucked. Utley is good.

  117. Ivan says:

    Give Credit to Utley, that was a great AB.

  118. Reggie C. says:

    Wow.

    Utley made CC blink.

    We’re down.

    FUCK.

  119. Alex S says:

    fuck utley

  120. Quikksand says:

    Yankees bats better GET IT GOING!

  121. Russell NY says:

    Game ova

  122. Dela G says:

    do not throw howard any fastballs

  123. Ghost of Scott Brosius says:

    Buck couldve warned us he was about to cum

  124. Pasqua says:

    Utley is just spitting on CC’s off-speed stuff, waiting for a mistake. He got it.

  125. JMK aka The Overshare says:

    Hell of an AB. Props to Utley.

  126. acb says:

    now i see why mets fans hate utley so much

  127. CT Yankee says:

    Shit Happens. Shake it off CC

  128. C says:

    Hopefully this will be like Game 1 of the ALDS, where CC looks shaky early but then settles down.

  129. whozat says:

    CC has no command at all today.

  130. mustang says:

    No problem moving on.

  131. Souter Fell says:

    let’s get it right back

  132. Mike Axisa says:

    Uh oh, CC’s mad.

  133. Dela G says:

    attaboy CC, i think CC is angry now and will buckle down

  134. Riddering says:

    I enjoyed that strikeout.

  135. G FUnk says:

    we always play from behind… i am glad they got the lead… right??? haha

  136. Alex S says:

    wowow what is that like 60 pitches through 3?

  137. Alright, good bounce back AB. Let’s fuckin’ go, offense. Remember who you are.

  138. Salty Buggah says:

    OK. CC’s angry now! He’s gonna mow em down now.

  139. Ivan says:

    Wow, CC was so ticked off the way he K’d Howard.

  140. Brazilian Yankee says:

    Well, I guess it’s time for the offense to do something.

  141. Rey22 says:

    We still got this.

  142. Stormrider6 says:

    Time for another comeback. We still got this.

  143. Lefty says:

    I think that was the wake up call CC needed, hopefully the rest of the team follows suit… New thread time? Mike? Watcha think?

  144. Ghost of Scott Brosius says:

    CC’s fine. It was a nice at bat by utley, and cc gave in. cc goes in and out of dominant periods during a game. As long as he’s throwing strikes and getting outs im not worried

  145. Jake H says:

    CC doesn’t look right mechanically. Just a little off.

  146. danny says:

    lets go offense!

  147. Pasqua says:

    I give credit to the Phils for their patience. Somehow, they are not getting fooled by the changeup. Eventually that pays off. Hopefully, we start to see Lee a bit better and make him labor.

  148. Rey22 says:

    Remember, A-Rod clicks on the insane switch when we’re behind. It’s all part of the plan.

  149. Ivan says:

    Guys don’t worry with CC with the pitch count. The guy could go 120+ pitches with ease.

  150. Dan Friedman says:

    justin timberlake + peyton manning = makes me happy

  151. Jobamania says:

    alright CC is going 7 from this point on
    he didnt have anything going earlier, no command, no slider(must have been tipping it, phillies didnt even flinch at it)

    no command + no strike out pitch is a bad recipe but he showed some beast in that howard at bat
    i think he settles down and goes 7

  152. Jay says:

    Good Lord. Did 6 years of not being in the WS turn you guys into simpering girls? It’s 1-0, not 100-0. Chill the f**k out. Yanks got this, despite Joe Buck creaming his pants over Cliff Lee.

  153. Riddering says:

    Lee is crisp like a Pink Lady apple on an Autumn evening.

  154. Buddy says:

    that was a strike

  155. Ghost of Scott Brosius says:

    Haha lee’s two good innings merit a fox montage

  156. Tampa Yankee says:

    GEESH Buck, get off Lee’s dick!

  157. JMK aka The Overshare says:

    It’s 1-0, there is no need to panic.

  158. Dela G says:

    he has no command of the curveball (lee), so no one should swing at it

    • Pasqua says:

      His location is sucky as well. Looks like the gameplan was swing early…that might need to be adjusted.

  159. ansky says:

    I really hate Joe Buck.

  160. JMK aka The Overshare says:

    When is the last time Swisher had a hit?

  161. Brazilian Yankee says:

    Joe G. seriously has to consider taking Swisher out of the lineup. He’s Gardner bad right now.

  162. charlespoet says:

    Ok, new series, same hitters still not hitting. Can’t go on much longer.

  163. Swish chased it up the ladder.

  164. Salty Buggah says:

    Cmon Swish, you gotta start hitting soon man.

  165. Jobamania says:

    difference sofar
    yankees swinging at every slop pitch that Lee is throwing while the Phils aren’t even flinching at sabathia’s slider

  166. Dela G says:

    damn

    maybe jeter can get something going

    cliff lee looks good

  167. Cano and Posada have put good swings on the ball. Everyone else? Not so much.

  168. Pasqua says:

    Since the first inning, Buck has been talking about Lee as if he’d already thrown seven shutout innings.

  169. Alex S says:

    Cap’n!

    bring him home johnny!

  170. Dela G says:

    JETER!!

    EL CAPITAN!

  171. Tampa Yankee says:

    CAPTAIN!

  172. ansky says:

    The Captain strikes again.

  173. JobaWockeeZ says:

    No stupid ass bunting Damon.

  174. Brazilian Yankee says:

    Derek, here we go! Now can we get something cooking with RISP?

  175. Jobamania says:

    its too sad we have damon up next

  176. TJ says:

    2 out hits

    Love ‘em!

  177. cjc says:

    this is on cc to hold it here because if Lee is going to throw like this our lineup = screwed

    and Jeter doubles I stand by my statement

  178. Souter Fell says:

    alright jetes, nice doub

  179. Riddering says:

    NOW YOU’RE IN NEW YORK.

  180. Salty Buggah says:

    2nd time through!!!!!

    We’re gonna get him!

    Cmon JD, get a 2-out RISP hit please.

  181. Dela G says:

    JEREK LETER!!

    [/MCCARVER’D

  182. Pasqua says:

    Jerek Deter.

    /McCarver’d

  183. C says:

    Jerek Deter!

  184. Jay says:

    Joe Buck now hates Derek Jeter for getting a hit off his beloved Cliff Lee.

  185. Yankeefan91 Arod fan says:

    Dammn i Need to take a walk cuz i really am shocked and soaked things threw thanks guys for all the congrats.

  186. Quikksand says:

    do something yankees

  187. Tampa Yankee says:

    I wonder how the wall tastes? Werth totally ate it.

  188. charlespoet says:

    base hit by JD

  189. Brazilian Yankee says:

    Damn, that 1-0 was a 84mph fastball right there…gotta hit those.

    Now we swings weakly at garbage.

  190. Dela G says:

    damon, you can’t be fucking waving

  191. ansky says:

    WTF is he swinging at???

  192. Jobamania says:

    ugh johnny is looking like a platooner these days

  193. Damon what the fuck are you doing tonight?

  194. Esteban says:

    Johnny Damon does not look very good right now

  195. JMK aka The Overshare says:

    Ugh, Damon.

  196. Tampa Yankee says:

    Damn JD

  197. Brazilian Yankee says:

    If Damon is so bad against Lee, why is he hitting second?

  198. Dela G says:

    damn it, so close there damon

    ok now the yanks can build on this next inning!

  199. Alex S says:

    fuck

  200. Salty Buggah says:

    Damnit. Gotta hit with RISP guys. Oh well, we got this.

  201. charlespoet says:

    that would have made it through if not for those shitty bats Damon uses.

  202. JobaWockeeZ says:

    He looked safe but of course no reply. F you Fox,
