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

Categories : Game Threads, Playoffs


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

    Cue the non-Jew-hating Mary Kay Messenger.

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

    have you ever been wrong with that claim, mike?

  3. Brazilian Yankee says:

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

  4. Drew says:

    Is this Kate Smith?? Sounds like her.

  5. The Artist says:

    Hey, where’s my favorite Irish tenor? Did something happen to him?

  6. Pasqua says:

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

    /No way I’m first on this joke.

  7. baravelli says:

    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 says:

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

  8. Tank the Frank says:

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

  9. Dela G says:

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

  10. ansky says:

    I miss Ronan Tynan…where’s Challenger?

  11. Brian says:

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

  12. Esteban says:

    YES! The long God Bless America! Freeze the Phillies

  13. Hova says:

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

  14. Dela G says:

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

  15. cozimoto says:

    This one has walkoff written all over it!

  16. JobaWockeeZ says:

    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.

  17. acb says:

    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.

  18. Drew says:

    Ronan Tynan is at the Playa Hater’s Ball.

  19. aroy says:

    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.

  20. danny says:

    c’mon offense, wake the heck up!!

  21. Salty Buggah says:

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

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

  23. Ivan says:

    7th inning will start to score some runs.

  24. ShuutoHeat says:

    god….I really hate this blackberry commercial

    the song is just so fucking annoying

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

  26. Evil Empire says:

    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.

  27. ansky says:

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

  28. JobaWockeeZ says:

    A-Rod is going to start something here.

  29. acb says:

    a long abomb will shake lee up

  30. Dela G says:

    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

  31. bonestock94 says:

    Lets fucking go!!!!

  32. Souter Fell says:

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

  33. Doug says:

    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!

  34. Mr Feeny says:

    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!

  35. Jake H says:

    It would be nice if the lefties did something.

  36. Mike bk says:

    repeat of minnesota 7th right here.

  37. I-MAC says:

    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

  38. slappy white says:

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

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

  40. Dela G says:


    a-rod is 0-3 :(

    he will get another at-bat though i predict

  41. Salty Buggah says:

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

  42. Esteban says:

    That’s it, A-Rod sucks again

    /obviously kdding

  43. Alex S says:

    posada needs to get on base

  44. cozimoto says:

    Phil will chill these Phills.

  45. Brazilian Yankee says:

    They are really hitting them hard.

  46. Tank the Frank says:

    This is just not going to happen tonight.

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

    lol @ posada/lee

  48. Pasqua says:

    Oh, this is just getting fucking stupid now.

  49. E-ROC says:

    Just. Wow.

  50. Drew says:

    I’d prefer CC comes back out but whatever.

  51. Jake H says:

    Great effort tonight from the Yanks.

  52. southernyankeefan says:

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

  53. slappy white says:

    UNBELIEVABLE how weakly we are going down

  54. charlespoet says:

    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.

  55. Phanatic Philly says:

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

  56. Dela G says:

    i want to chop my head off

    there are only 7 outs left

    we have to get on base somehow

  57. YankeeScribe says:

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

  58. Ivan says:

    Lets go Matsui.

  59. ansky says:

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

  60. Dela G says:

    man he is only at 94 pitches

    way to make him work

  61. Hova says:

    Total domination. Incredible performance by Lee tonight.

  62. baka nakamura says:

    fucking lee man, that creep is pitching.

  63. Doug says:

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

  64. Souter Fell says:

    lee could very well pitch this entire thing himself

  65. Jake H says:

    Lee is going to throw a complete game shutout.

  66. Alex S says:

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

  67. JobaWockeeZ says:

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

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

  69. charlespoet says:

    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.

  70. southernyankeefan says:

    A fucking 9 pitch 7th inning.

  71. danny says:

    at least get his pitch count up dammit.

  72. Ghost of Scott Brosius says:

    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?

  73. Sal says:

    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

  74. e mills says:

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

  75. W.O.W says:


    What a gutless fucking effort

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

  76. Drew says:

    Phil do your job and gank one of them dubyas.

  77. Dela G says:

    cmon phil, you gotta get your control back today

  78. Souter Fell says:

    let’s see which phil hughes this is

  79. Girardi out to the mound says:

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

  80. southernyankeefan says:

    Phew that would not have been good.

  81. Souter Fell says:

    jebus phil

  82. Tank the Frank says:

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

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

  83. Raf says:

    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

  84. Charlie says:

    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

  85. Ghost of Scott Brosius says:

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

  86. Brazilian Yankee says:

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

  87. Jay says:

    Good work Phil. Good grief.

  88. Ghost of Scott Brosius says:

    thats fucking great phil. jesus

  89. ansky says:

    c’mon Phil

  90. Salty Buggah says:

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

  91. chuck says:

    that was a terrible pitch

  92. E-ROC says:

    Ugh. Hate lead off walks.

  93. Reggie C. says:

    Way to overthrow.

    now pitch from the stretch and grow the fuck up.

  94. AJ says:

    Great leadoff walk.

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

  95. southernyankeefan says:

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

  96. The Artist says:

    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.

  97. danny says:

    c’mon DP.

  98. BJ says:

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

  99. cjc says:

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

  100. Mike Pop says:

    That wasn’t a fucking strike!

  101. BJ says:

    Hughes is shot

  102. charlespoet says:

    jesus christ…..

  103. E-ROC says:

    Wasn’t that a friggin’ strike?

  104. Mike Axisa says:

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

  105. Ivan says:

    Where was dat pitch?

  106. Brazilian Yankee says:

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

  107. ansky says:

    where have you gone Phil Hughes?

  108. GK says:

    YEAA. Robertson up.

  109. JMK aka The Overshare says:

    Holy shit, Phil.

  110. charlespoet says:

    Well this is good, just what we need.

  111. chuck says:

    really? is this what we need right now phil?

  112. Girardi out to the mound says:

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

  113. JobaWockeeZ says:

    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.

  114. Souter Fell says:

    ugh, THIS phil hughes showed up

  115. Salty Buggah says:

    Umm, Hughes? What’s up man?

    Horrible throw JoPo, could have had it.

  116. cjc says:

    great thrwo ugh

  117. Ivan says:

    Hughes FB command needss to come back.

  118. E-ROC says:

    That should be a K for Hughes.

  119. Jay says:

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

  120. YankeeScribe says:

    The Phillies have great plate discipline tonite

  121. Hova says:

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

  122. BigBlueAL says:

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

  123. Command: Phil does not has it.

  124. Josh says:

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

  125. ansky says:


  126. Mike Pop says:

    Hughes can’t handle the pressha!

  127. GK says:

    Where the hell is Coke?

  128. Doug says:


  129. Pasqua says:

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

  130. JMK aka The Overshare says:

    I think I’m having a heart attack.

  131. southernyankeefan says:

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

  132. cjc says:

    fucking atrocious

  133. charlespoet says:

    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.

    • JobaWockeeZ says:

      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 says:

        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.

  134. Ivan says:

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

  135. Brian says:

    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.

  136. Raf says:

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

  137. Reggie C. says:

    Rollins laughing.

    Dude knows something we dont?

  138. Charlie says:

    throw your god damn curveball hughes. and THROW A FUCKING STRIKE!!! holy shit, where has phil hughes gone???????

  139. Drew says:

    Shoulda brought in Hughes, I mean D-Rob, I mean Joba, I mean shoulda left CC in. Stupid Joe!

  140. Dela G says:

    wow i think i might choke someone

  141. BJ says:


  142. Jake H says:

    This game is done.

  143. aa says:

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

  144. JMK aka The Overshare says:

    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.

  145. Bob Stone says:

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

  146. charlespoet says:

    From PeteAbe tweet:


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

  147. Jay says:

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

  148. donttradecano says:

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


  149. ansky says:

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

  150. CT Yankee says:

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

  151. BronxBomber44 says:

    Come on Marte, be a beast.

  152. MAMO says:

    Hughes pitching scared.

    • JobaWockeeZ says:

      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.

  153. Mike Pop says:


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

  154. Brazilian Yankee says:

    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.

  155. NatalMike says:

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

  156. charlespoet says:

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

  157. ansky says:

    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.

  158. 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.

  159. Justin R says:

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

  160. Why didn’t Huges get that call?

  161. Nice pitch, Damaso.

  162. Brazilian Yankee says:

    Wow, huge out Marte.

  163. Mike Pop says:


  164. Doug says:

    Damaso dropping the hook!

  165. Ivan says:

    Good pitch Marte.

  166. southernyankeefan says:

    And Utley is finally retired.

  167. CT Yankee says:

    Yes. He just wanted to pitch to the national league

  168. E-ROC says:

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

  169. danny says:

    lets go, lets fucken GO.

  170. Charlie says:

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

  171. BJ says:

    Maybe cc should take an utley tip from marte

  172. Joe D. says:

    Hey boys just got home from work.

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

    • Doug says:

      Eh, just two or three.

    • Jay says:

      Yes and they’re making me sick.

    • Joe D. says:

      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 says:

      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.

  173. Hey, look, it’s David Robertson!

  174. E-ROC says:

    Marte did his job! Again!

  175. donttradecano says:

    so marte sucks, right trolls?

  176. JMK aka The Overshare says:

    Alright, let’s see what K-Rob has. He’s been a hot topic here.

  177. Salty Buggah says:

    Oh, Robertson has been found

  178. Ivan says:

    Marte does his job, a good one at that.

  179. Souter Fell says:

    alright robertson, prove you really are the man

  180. Damaso Marte >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Lefty hitters

  181. Evil Empire says:

    Heeeey a KRob sighting. Things are looking up already!

  182. Mike Pop says:

    I pwned Ian O Connor.


    /looks for some way to make self happy.

  183. Hova says:

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

  184. BigBlueAL says:

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

    • Mike Pop says:

      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 ;)

  185. danny says:


  186. Brazilian Yankee says:

    Marte did his job once again in this postseason.

  187. Reggie C. says:

    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.

  188. Gregorio says:

    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.

  189. chuck says:

    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!

  190. e mills says:

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

  191. CT Yankee says:

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

  192. baka nakamura says:

    anti- depressants can increase suicidal thoughts.

  193. Hey Philly, Yankees ain't the Rays says:

    K-Rob?!?!?!?! It’s not the 12th! Where’s Joba?????
