    Alright. 7th inning stretch. Here’s where the magic happens.

    Cue the non-Jew-hating Mary Kay Messenger.

  • Camilo Gerardo – your inception? fuck perception, go with what makes sense

    have you ever been wrong with that claim, mike?

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

      Once or twice.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    CC did his job. It’s time for the best offense in the majors to do theirs.

  • http://dinosaursneverexisted.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/melky.jpg Drew

    Is this Kate Smith?? Sounds like her.

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

      Not old-timey enough.

      Also not dead enough amirite

        Fun Fact of the Night:

        Kate Smith died before the Bill Buckner-through-the-wickets play.

        • Pasqua

          Like, RIGHT before that play?

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

            Heh.

            June 17th, 1986, smartypants.

    • JMK aka The Overshare

      Blasphemy. Kate Smith is TERRIBLE. This lady does sound French, though.

      Where’s Hippie Soldier Screecher?

    • Pasqua

      It sounds like a rotting corpse?

    • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

      Kate Smith is dead.

      • http://dinosaursneverexisted.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/melky.jpg Drew

        uh.. I guess that’s why it’s always a recording. Didn’t it sound like her though?

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

      Say what you want about Kate Smith, she was a major hottie in her day.

      you’re kidding, right?

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

      I’m sorry, what’s that? I couldn’t hear you, I was watching The Passion of the Christ on my home theater system with the surround sound cranked all the way up.

      What was that you said?

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

        *golf clap*

        Way more entertaining than this game has been so far.

          I give because I love.

  • Pasqua

    Too bad Ronan had to go and hate Jews. I’d love to ice Lee here.

    /No way I’m first on this joke.

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

      Don’t you just hate it when a dude just goes out and hates the Jews? Really messes up your entire day.

      • slappy white

        I love the Jews and Im having a shitty day

      • Pasqua

        Thanks for not correcting my spelling this time.

  • baravelli

    It’s true, things don’t look the best for the Yanks right now. But golly, reading these forums are just no fun at all! Has anybody here ever had anything less than good happen to a sports team they were rooting for before? Sheesh!

    • JMK aka The Overshare

      Have you been to a Redskins blog? Ask Drew about it. The moderators walk the plank. Voluntarily.

  • Tank the Frank

    I don’t think Charlie Manuel has any intention of taking Cliff Lee out. We’re going to have to beat him.

  • Dela G

    aight, i’m ready to see some offense and some yankees magic

  • ansky

    I miss Ronan Tynan…where’s Challenger?

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

      Challenger the Eagle was banned from the stadium for some disparaging remarks he made about Jewish eagles.

      • Pasqua

        Brilliant.

  • Brian

    Time for the offense to show up. I’m feeling good about this inning. Lets Go Yankees!

  • Esteban

    YES! The long God Bless America! Freeze the Phillies

  • Hova

    I like this lady better than the annoying racist with big ears.

    • JMK aka The Overshare

      I don’t think they qualify as a race. But whatevz.

  • Dela G

    wow, this was a very good “god bles america”

  • cozimoto

    This one has walkoff written all over it!

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bm61weFrK4c JobaWockeeZ

    Well…I think there is an expectation of winning. To not be frustrated would mean that you don’t care. Even if you just do the ol’ hat tip to Lee, it still has to annoy the shit out of you.

    There’s a difference in being frustrated and giving up in the first inning. I understand the frustration but not the senseless whining about not winning as soon as they can.

    • Pasqua

      True.

      • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bm61weFrK4c JobaWockeeZ

        Actually I think I take out all my frustration from the Yanks to the haters. heh.

  • acb

    the way lee is going he can prob only go 8 innings so we definatly have a chance at lidge if our pen does its job.

  • http://dinosaursneverexisted.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/melky.jpg Drew

    Ronan Tynan is at the Playa Hater’s Ball.

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

      What can I say about that coat… that hasn’t already been said about Afghanistan.

  • aroy

    The Yanks needed that badly. CC was all we could have asked for tonight – on a night he didn’t even have his best stuff. The Yankees need to get something going against Lee. Big inning coming here.

  • danny

    c’mon offense, wake the heck up!!

  • Salty Buggah

    7th inning. It’s our time. Time to mash.

  • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

    Rodriguez, Posada, Matsui? Smells, sounds, and tastes (don’t ask, I just know) like runs.

    • Evil Empire

      It feels and looks like runs too.

    • Tank the Frank

      More like strikeouts if past ABs are any indications.

  • Ivan

    7th inning will start to score some runs.

  • ShuutoHeat

    god….I really hate this blackberry commercial

    the song is just so fucking annoying

  • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

    They don’t even show a BlackBerry in that goddamn ad!!!!!

    • ShuutoHeat

      Ugh, McCarver’s dry wheezy hacking laugh is like a rusty saw.

  • Evil Empire

    I’m going to tell all the good folks on the RAB forums what I’ve been telling my friends and family nonstop since this game started:

    CHILL. Down two runs is fucking nothing to the Yankees, and this is the first game of the series. Don’t waste your energy stressing and enjoy a quality ball game of the highest level. This coming from a guy who lives and breaths the Yankees every day of my life since I was born – its not like I don’t give a shit about the team or my fellow fans. Its just that now is not the time to bitch. Now is the time to have fun and root your ass off for the team in a positive manner.

    • rbizzler

      Whatever.

      I can tip my cap to Cliff Lee, but that doesn’t mean I have to like it.

    • JMK aka The Overshare

      When I finish with my yoga, I’ll read what you wrote.

      WE’RE GOING TO DRINK THEIR BLOOD!

      • Evil Empire

        Hah, now that’s something I can be down with. Yankees earned our confidence.

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

      That.

      Frankly, I feel like since it’s the 7th inning and they haven’t scored 7 runs off us yet, we’re still winning.

      You’re gonna need more than this, Phillies.

      • Evil Empire

        Fuckin god damn right they’re gonna need more. I knew you’d be down Tommie, you know what’s what. I don’t care how shitty the team has looked for X amount of innings, they’ve shown me time and again that shit is not over until it is motherfucking OVER.

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

          I’ll start doubting the Yankees when we’re down 10 runs with one out left in the 9th.

  • ansky

    Ok Joboo we need your help here…get us some runs!

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bm61weFrK4c JobaWockeeZ

    A-Rod is going to start something here.

  • acb

    a long abomb will shake lee up

  • Dela G

    that mcdonalds commercial always makes me laugh

    mcdonalds guy with 1 buck to the taxi driver “How far can i get with this [dollar]?”

    Taxi Driver with accent: “You can get out”

    makes me laugh every time

  • bonestock94

    Lets fucking go!!!!

  • Souter Fell

    we need at least one this inning, paging Arod, paging Arod

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

    It’s cute how Chevy commercials call them “imports” even though THEY’RE ALL MADE IN GODDAMN AMERICA. BY AMERICANS.

    Uh, I mean USA! USA! USA!

  • Mr Feeny

    haha the tying run? You mean they will get a baserunner this inning? That’s not saying much. We need a “who’s getting the pie?” thread here!

  • http://twitter.com/hopjake Jake H

    It would be nice if the lefties did something.

  • Mike bk

    repeat of minnesota 7th right here.

    • Mike bk

      game 3 of course.

  • I-MAC

    Watch Cliff Lee go to his hat every time he throws his cutter or breaking ball. This doesnt concern any of you? I think he’s cheating

    • http://dinosaursneverexisted.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/melky.jpg Drew

      Most pitchers touch the brim of their hat before they throw any pitch.

    • Brazilian Yankee

      Stop making excuses. This offense has been garbage. Lee did good but he has left some pitches down the middle.

      • Tank the Frank

        I agree completely. They’ve swung through a lot of good pitches to hit. They’ve been doing it all postseason but no one has cared because they’ve been winning. But this offense has been complete garbage the entire postseason, and their hitting with RISP has been even worse. Besides Jeter, A-Rod, and a few recent hits from Melky, no one in this lineup is doing much of anything. And it’s why we’re going to lose this series.

    • Alex S

      really man?

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

      I think he’s cheating

      I’m gonna go tell his wife.

    • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

      It’s resin.

  • slappy white

    here goes John Sterling with the “sometimes you gotta tip your hat” shit

  • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

    Alex is getting pull happy tonight. I don’t like it.

    • Salty Buggah

      Yea, me neither. His swing seems longer too.

  • Dela G

    ugh

    a-rod is 0-3 :(

    he will get another at-bat though i predict

  • Salty Buggah

    Damn, not a good game for 2-4 hitters…so far

  • Esteban

    That’s it, A-Rod sucks again

    /obviously kdding

  • Alex S

    posada needs to get on base

  • cozimoto

    Phil will chill these Phills.

    • Pasqua

      It’s not so much the Phils needing to be chilled, as us needing to be heated up.

  • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

    ….

  • Brazilian Yankee

    They are really hitting them hard.

  • Tank the Frank

    This is just not going to happen tonight.

    • Camilo Gerardo – your inception? fuck perception, go with what makes sense

      see the door?

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

      You still haven’t learned, have you?

  • Camilo Gerardo – your inception? fuck perception, go with what makes sense

    lol @ posada/lee

  • Pasqua

    Oh, this is just getting fucking stupid now.

  • E-ROC

    Just. Wow.

  • http://dinosaursneverexisted.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/melky.jpg Drew

    I’d prefer CC comes back out but whatever.

  • danny

    UGH.

  • http://twitter.com/hopjake Jake H

    Great effort tonight from the Yanks.

  • southernyankeefan

    Man this is a weak showing by the offense. Cliff Lee is otherwordly tonight.

  • slappy white

    UNBELIEVABLE how weakly we are going down

  • charlespoet

    Wow, knocked the fuck out that ball. Now it is time for Matsui and then top of the 8th. When will this team start hitting again.

    • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bm61weFrK4c JobaWockeeZ

      Don’t you ask that every game?

      • Brazilian Yankee

        They haven’t started yet.

  • Phanatic Philly

    Ownage. Nothing but ownage.
    Posada was walking back to the bench.

  • Dela G

    i want to chop my head off

    there are only 7 outs left

    we have to get on base somehow

  • YankeeScribe

    We lost this one. Atleast we get to face Pedro in Game 2

    • Evil Empire

      That’s not cool man. You can’t just give up on a World Series game when we’re down two runs until its over.

    • Camilo Gerardo – your inception? fuck perception, go with what makes sense

      seriously? we are only 2 down

    • Ivan

      After all those comebacks, your sucumbing to defeat?

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

      One of these days, all you “OH FUCK IT, WE LOST THIS GAME IS OVER” guys will be proven right, and you’ll be so proud of yourselves.

      One of these days… nah, probably not.

  • Ivan

    Lets go Matsui.

  • ansky

    This is just ridiculous and I want to punch McCarver and Buck until my hand hurts!

    • Josh

      Why, for pointing out the obvious? The Yankees are Cliff Lee’s bitch tonight.

  • Dela G

    man he is only at 94 pitches

    way to make him work

  • Hova

    Total domination. Incredible performance by Lee tonight.

  • baka nakamura

    fucking lee man, that creep is pitching.

    • chuck

      best comment i have read all night, cept i think it should be “that creep can pitch”

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

    It’s the 8th inning and it’s 10:22 PM? Inconceivable.

  • Souter Fell

    lee could very well pitch this entire thing himself

  • http://twitter.com/hopjake Jake H

    Lee is going to throw a complete game shutout.

    • Ivan

      That, he won’t do.

    • Ivan

      That, he won’t do.

  • Alex S

    this is pathetic, lee probably comes out for the 8th. idk about the 9th hopefully we hit lidge

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bm61weFrK4c JobaWockeeZ

    95 for Lee. Make him work more, take him out.

  • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

    Two bad pitches by Sabathia are the difference in this game. Dammit Dammit. Dammit.

    • Ghost of Scott Brosius

      True. thats whats killing me. cc’s essentially matched him pitch for pitch.

  • charlespoet

    Dominant offense tonight, very dominant. Think they have helped Cliff Lee more than Lee has helped himself.

    Oh well, they need to come back and win tomorrow night. Those 3 games in Philly will be tough. CC, sorry your effort was wasted.

    • http://dinosaursneverexisted.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/melky.jpg Drew

      2 innings left chief.

      • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bm61weFrK4c JobaWockeeZ

        This game ended 5 innings ago buddy.

  • southernyankeefan

    A fucking 9 pitch 7th inning.

  • danny

    at least get his pitch count up dammit.

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    Wow. Feel free to correct me if i’m wrong, i certainly dont remember every game, but could this be our worst offensive game of the season?

    • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bm61weFrK4c JobaWockeeZ

      Getting shut out by the Mets on a non-Johan pitcher is more embarrassing than Cliff Lee.

    • JackC

      Think it’s more Lee than the Yanks. He’s having a great run here, and short of an aneurysm, won’t be coming out.

    • http://dinosaursneverexisted.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/melky.jpg Drew

      We have the most runs scored from the 7th inning on. Correct me if I’m wrong but that includes the 8th and 9th innings.

    • Evil Empire

      I think that game vs Lannan was pretty god damn bad. Oh and Doc Halladay destroyed us that one game in August.

  • Sal

    CC 7 inning 2 run 4 hits and it was clear he had problems with his fastball control. gotta love it , even if we lose game 1

    i haven’t seen any fat lady singing have you

    • slappy white

      couldnt really tell if she was fat under that big ass coat

  • e mills

    here’s how this goes….no hits in the 8th, Jeter gets on, Damon K’s, Tex HBP…A-Rod walkoff HR

    • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

      I’d give something of decent value for that.

    • Pasqua

      I love how, even in your dramatic comeback fantasy, Damon still looks like shit.

  • W.O.W

    BOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    What a gutless fucking effort

    Winner of game 1 has won 12 of last 13 WS. Way to show up

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

        OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH YEAH BABY

  • http://dinosaursneverexisted.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/melky.jpg Drew

    Phil do your job and gank one of them dubyas.

  • Dela G

    cmon phil, you gotta get your control back today

  • Souter Fell

    let’s see which phil hughes this is

  • Girardi out to the mound

    How is Lee getting such weak swings when he keeps falling behind 1-0 and 2-0?

    • Jay

      They’re off balance. Lee has enough confidence to throw change-ups and curves on those counts.

    • Jackson

      He’s a really, really good pitcher. They’re generally difficult to hit.

    • Phanatic Philly

      Lee is pitching a gem. It looks like the Yanks are just chulking this up as a loss and will try to get Pedro tomorrow.

  • southernyankeefan

    Phew that would not have been good.

  • Souter Fell

    jebus phil

  • Tank the Frank

    Cliff Lee’s about to hand us a nice CG shutout.

    He brought it, put it on the table, and opened it.

  • Raf

    the Phillies have just been more aggressive at bat tonight. Lee has been out of this world though, tip your hat to that. hold them here and get em in the bottom of the inning

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

      It’s really just been Utley.

  • Charlie

    this game is such fucking bullshit. The whole lineup is Cliff Lee’s bitch and they’re getting mowed down like a bunch of pussies. i’m holding out a little hope we’ll come back in the eighth/ninth, but this is seriously the worst the lineup has looked in months

    • Brazilian Yankee

      We need a Cashman clubhouse visit.

    • http://dinosaursneverexisted.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/melky.jpg Drew

      Yayyy!! Charlie is here! Man we were waiting for you.

      • Charlie

        shut the fuck up already. i bet you were waiting for me cause clearly all you do is sit on the computer and make annoying comments. i bet you’re not even upset at all that the yankees might lose this game

        • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bm61weFrK4c JobaWockeeZ

          i bet you were waiting for me cause clearly all you do is sit on the computer and make annoying comments.
          I laughed.

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bm61weFrK4c JobaWockeeZ

            At the irony of course.

        • http://dinosaursneverexisted.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/melky.jpg Drew

          Chill out there big man. I was waiting for you. I long for your comments.

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

          i bet you’re not even upset at all that the yankees might lose this game

          No, we’re just not unwise like you are. You mistake our calmness for disinterest, because you equate irrationality with passion when it’s merely irrationality.

          • Charlie

            whatever dude, but the irrationality is obviously a result of passion. and what i originally said may have been filled with expletives, but it was for the most part true

            • http://dinosaursneverexisted.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/melky.jpg Drew

              It was actually filled with expletives and entirely false.

    • Buddy

      You wouldnt recognize a pitcher (Lee) on top of his game if he smacked you in the face…

      Ever hear the saying “Good pitching beats good hitting”?

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    on the bright side, there’s gotta be a ton in the tank for pedro tomorrow. right?

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Remember the times when Hughes was a shutdown reliever. Those were good times…

  • Jay

    Good work Phil. Good grief.

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    thats fucking great phil. jesus

  • ansky

    c’mon Phil

  • Salty Buggah

    Seriously, whats up with Hughes. Get it back Philty!

  • chuck

    that was a terrible pitch

  • E-ROC

    Ugh. Hate lead off walks.

  • Reggie C.

    Way to overthrow.

    now pitch from the stretch and grow the fuck up.

  • AJ

    Great leadoff walk.

    And we all still wait for Phil Hughes to find his stuff.

  • southernyankeefan

    Phil WTF. get your shit together and get Victorino to GIDP.

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

    As good as Lee has been, every batter has had a pitch or two they could handle. This is the type of game where they’re going to watch the tape and kick themselves. But give Lee credit, he has them betwixt and between all night.

    • ShuutoHeat

      The offense is going to kick themselves HARD.

    • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

      Good perspective: The Artist has it.

    • Raf

      lots of hitters counts where they might as well been behind in the count. hes been hitting his spots all night and not allowing them to sit on anything.

      • BJ

        Give lee credit. Don’t whine

        • Raf

          i believe thats what i did

    • Pasqua

      I agree with you. The change has been nasty the last few innings, but early on they were swinging through a lot of mistakes.

    • Evil Empire

      I concur with this assessment, but they’ll only really be kicking themselves if they lose which is far from determined.

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

        That.

  • danny

    c’mon DP.

  • BJ

    Good thing we didn’t trade joba or Phil for lee

    • Mike Pop

      Yeah, it is a good thing.

    • Arman Tamzarian

      Your really reaching buddy

    • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bm61weFrK4c JobaWockeeZ

      Yup.

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

      Yes, it is.

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

      I agree!

      • BJ

        Im sure they might throw 200 innings soon. 5 years?

        • Evil Empire

          Well Joba is good for 180+ next year, and Phil 150-ish. Or do you not really know about developing young pitchers?

          • BJ

            Win a title or 2 or develop a starter???

            • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bm61weFrK4c JobaWockeeZ

              NICE retort.

          WHY THE FUCK IS MY BURRITO TAKING THIS LONG TO COOK IN THIS MICROWAVE?!?!?!??!?!??!?!??!

    • Pasqua

      Holy shit, I was actually going to make a “We should’ve traded for Lee!” joke, but your earnestness beat me to it.

  • cjc

    come on find the zone with the way this lineup has embarassd themselves you can’t give up anymore

  • Mike Pop

    That wasn’t a fucking strike!

  • BJ

    Hughes is shot

  • charlespoet

    jesus christ…..

  • E-ROC

    Wasn’t that a friggin’ strike?

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

    WTF? Where did that pitch miss? Lee was getting that call all night.

  • Ivan

    Where was dat pitch?

  • Brazilian Yankee

    1-0 pitch was a strike. But hey, umps are just awesome.

  • ansky

    where have you gone Phil Hughes?

  • GK

    YEAA. Robertson up.

  • JMK aka The Overshare

    Holy shit, Phil.

  • charlespoet

    Well this is good, just what we need.

  • chuck

    really? is this what we need right now phil?

  • Girardi out to the mound

    Phil Hughes has now walked 2 guys with an OBP under .300 this postseason.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bm61weFrK4c JobaWockeeZ

    It’s hard to pitch when the only “strikes” you can get is the middle of the damn plate.

    Oh wait we don’t know if that is a strike with these fail umps.

  • Souter Fell

    ugh, THIS phil hughes showed up

  • Salty Buggah

    Umm, Hughes? What’s up man?

    Horrible throw JoPo, could have had it.

  • cjc

    great thrwo ugh

  • Ivan

    Hughes FB command needss to come back.

  • E-ROC

    That should be a K for Hughes.

  • Jay

    Actually Tim, you unprepared douche, the Phillies have run on 3-0 counts a lot this year.

  • YankeeScribe

    The Phillies have great plate discipline tonite

  • Hova

    Alright. My patience is wearing thin. Seen enough of Phil Hughes this post-season. Dude can’t find the strike zone.

  • BigBlueAL

    This might be last time we see Hughes pitch an 8th inning this year.

    • Hova

      That would be a good thing correct?

      • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bm61weFrK4c JobaWockeeZ

        Well he’s saying this year, so no.

        • BigBlueAL

          Right, hopefully next time he pitches an 8th inning will be during a start next season.

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

      I doubt that.

      • BJ

        Because he’s been so good right?

      • BigBlueAL

        Blowouts dont count.

  • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

    Command: Phil does not has it.

  • Josh

    OK, I’ve seen enough. Good night everyone, see you in game 2. It’s a long series, tonight is not the Yankees’ night.

    • Pasqua

      Wow. It’s a 2-run game and only 10:30. That combo does not strike me as “goodnight” worthy.

  • ansky

    Phil’s been reading RAB. He thinks the game is over, apparently.

  • JMK aka The Overshare

    I think I’m having a heart attack.

  • southernyankeefan

    Fuck the bullpen Mo excluded needs to straighten out their bullshit.

  • cjc

    fucking atrocious

  • charlespoet

    This is just unbelievable. Can’t pitch, can’t hit, wtf is going on with these damn guys. Keep playing like this, series will be over on sunday.

    • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bm61weFrK4c JobaWockeeZ

      Yup CC can’t pitch.
      Yup the offense never hits like you must point out every game despite the exact opposite happening.
      And then the it’s over statement you’ve said like a thousand times by now in the Angels series.

      • charlespoet

        Um, that is exactly what i said….. Oh wait, Phil Hughes was pitching when the statement was made…. Cliff Lee has used this line up like a cheep whore, AND I said IF IF IF IF IF they keep playing like this the series will be over.

        I don’t mind you calling me out but fucking read what is written and stop twisting shit like you are Glenn Beck.

  • Ivan

    Wow Hughes. Come on. Step ya game up Now. Yankees need you. Wake the fuck up.

  • Brian

    Ugh, what is up with Hughes this post season? Helluva time to go into a slump.

    I could go for a double play and strikeout to follow.

  • Raf

    Hughes leaving them in a tough spot, great. gotta get out of it.

  • Reggie C.

    Rollins laughing.

    Dude knows something we dont?

  • Charlie

  • aa

    ugh, now we have to rely on AJ tomorrow. Somehow that doesn’t make me feel good.

  • JMK aka The Overshare

    If we were playing the Mets I’d feel very confident in us getting a triple play here. Still, I don’t think Marte makes the same mistakes to Utley.

    DP here. Book it.

  • http://www.stonerh1@aol.com Bob Stone

    Who’s going to get the Yankees walk off hit tonight?

    • Evil Empire

      I like you Bob.

      A-Rod is the safe bet, no?

    • http://dinosaursneverexisted.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/melky.jpg Drew

      I said Po would be the POTG a lil while ago. So I’m sticking with that.

  • charlespoet

    From PeteAbe tweet:

    PeteAbe

    Nice hustle, Jorge. Yankees looking like they’re resting up for Game 2

    • Hova

      Fuck PeteAbe. Made it to the WS after he left for that shit show in Boston.

      • Pasqua

        He’s right on that one.

    • cjc

      well he’s right this team looks awful

  • Jay

    Hughes just walked 2 guys with a combined OBP of .327

  • donttradecano

    is this only pitches not swung at? if so lees gotten generous calls.

    http://www.brooksbaseball.net/.....v_size=500

  • ansky

    I guess that settles the whole…”why did Joe let AJ start the 7th?” thing.

  • CT Yankee

    OK… Who expected this? (Phil sucking in the post season)

  • BronxBomber44

    Come on Marte, be a beast.

  • MAMO

    Hughes pitching scared.

    • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bm61weFrK4c JobaWockeeZ

      I’d be pitching scared when the only strikes you can get are right down the middle.

      Of course we don’t know that since this ump is busy watching Cliff Lee.

  • Mike Pop

    http://twitter.com/SI_JonHeyman/status/5248684122

    Dude had a right to. Ball 2 was a joke.

    • Raf

      i dont understand that. what constitutes the right or wrong game for him to do that?

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

      True, but every pitcher gets screwed here and there. He’s acting like he has no margin for error, which apparently he doesn’t.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    With AJ against this great lineup, it’s a real possibility we could go down 2 to Philly. And that would probably mean series over.

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

      Just jump already. You have nothing to live for.

      • Mike Pop

        LET’S ALL FORGET THAT PEDRO IS PITCHING TOMORROW.

    • Pasqua

      Why would that probably mean series over?

    • Hova

      Die

    • Phanatic Philly

      If that happens the series WILL be over. Bank on it.

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

        Don’t encourage him, please. Kthxbye.

      • Pasqua

        Your objectivity is astounding.

    • Justin R.

      And now I remembered why I was staying away from here during the game…way to turn a great site into a cesspool of nonsense.

    • http://www.stonerh1@aol.com Bob Stone

      Not happening – but let’s not forget that the Yanks went down two against the Dodgers in ’78 and won the next four straight. They did the same against Atlanta in ’96. I’m not worried.

  • NatalMike

    We give them this one. Win tomorrow. Take 2 out of 3 in Philly and win it in 6 maybe 7 back home.

    • charlespoet

      That is awfully bold. Don’t see them taking 2 of 3 in Philly.

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

        You didn’t see them winning the ALDS, or ALCS. You had them losing like 4-5 games that they won.

        Your prediction powers suck ass. Stop predicting things.

  • charlespoet

    great bases loaded by the imploding bull pen… just what they need, bases loaded with Howard coming up.

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

      The bases are not loaded.

    • JMK aka The Overshare

      Say that again?

      Your prediction powers suck ass. Stop predicting things.
      I have nothing to add just wanted this to become clearer.

  • ansky

    wow…maybe the Yanks are still drunk from the game 6 celebration…I mean they did party pretty hard and I here they had some good quality champagne in that clubhouse.

    • ansky

      *hear*

    • Pasqua

      Yes…that’s it.

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

    For all the people saying this game is over:

    Think back to how many times you’ve said that this season and been wrong. Be honest. Start learning from your mistakes.

    The record speaks for itself. Be smarter.

    That is all.

    • JMK aka The Overshare

      I’ve done it before. I have repented and will not do it again.

    • BronxBomber44

      If they keep saying it, it’ll happen again… !

    • http://www.stonerh1@aol.com Bob Stone

      This team is NEVER out of a game until it’s over!

    • http://dinosaursneverexisted.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/melky.jpg Drew

      If you don’t curse at people and bitch after seven and a half innings you are obviously not passionate and don’t care if the Yankees lose.

  • Justin R

    Jorge didn’t do Hughes any favors with his framing of those pitches. Still, on Hughes though

    Yes. He just wanted to pitch to the national league

    ‘Bout damn time they went away from Utley. He’s a dead pull hitter.

    holy shit marte. he’s actually been good this postseason

  • BJ

    Maybe cc should take an utley tip from marte

    Hey boys just got home from work.

    Are the fairweather crybaby bridge-jumpers calling the Suicide Hotline yet over one partial game?

      Eh, just two or three.

    • Jay

      Yes and they’re making me sick.

    • Joe D.

      Taking a quick look over the thread so far…

      …ah, the answer is obviously “yes”.

      How sad.

      Well, I’m not the least bit worried yet.

      If we lose four games, then I’ll worry. Not until then. Not when I consider how this team has fought like crazy this year, no matter the score, no matter the inning.

    • Evil Empire

      Dude its pretty bad. I keep seeing a few names crying and moaning constantly and its a joke. Glad to see more real fans who, y’know, actually have some faith in the god damn team, showing up.

    Hey, look, it’s David Robertson!

    Nice. KRob in for four outs. Hopefully it will be tied by the 9th.

  • BigBlueAL

    Good job Marte, that contract might work out after all.

    • Mike Pop

      Lol @ this comment.

      After he gets hit, he’s a bum but now after 2 good outs he’s a good pitcher again.

      Cash might of misread the market on Damaso but I’m happy to have him on the team ;)

  • danny

    K-ROB!

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Marte did his job once again in this postseason.

  • Reggie C.

    Good job Damaso.

    You’re rising on the depth chart. This guy is gonna get a full inning of work before the WS is over.

  • Gregorio

    This game has been a tough one; the fact that we can’t get to that Phillies bullpen to test them, I’m going to say its going to take a miracle to pull this one out, especially the way that Lee is pitching; but Robertson coming in is a great site to see, hopefully he can perform and earn some trust from Girardi, who claims he has a bum shoulder.

  • chuck

    ok so one positive, if we get out of this, then we make lee come in after a nice long sit on a cold wet night. we tie this in the bottom of the 8th!

  • e mills

    hold em’ here and Swish redeems(if he really does need to) himself with a 2-run HR

  • CT Yankee

    Oh BTW. Kudos to Girardi for starting the inning with Hughes. Did not work out but I been bitchin’ about it all year.

  • baka nakamura
