    Well done Andy.

  • Hall and Nokes

    Good job, Andy. I’ll be up all night.

    • http://www.newyorkjets.com/image_assets/8997/052109_coach_rex_ryan_presser_320.jpg The Honorable Congressman Mondesi

      1) Ew.

      2) Amazing name. Big-time golf clap in your direction.

  • http://www.newyorkjets.com/image_assets/8997/052109_coach_rex_ryan_presser_320.jpg The Honorable Congressman Mondesi

    Did Andy make a statement there? Joe?

    • Brazilian Yankee

      Career-defining inning, right?

    • Ghost of Scott Brosius

      Heh. Seriously. Since when is a 123 first inning a “statement?”

    • Esteban

      Silly Mondesi, only Phillies pitchers can make statements

    • Pasqua

      Nope. He’s a Yankee, after all. Yankees don’t make statements. They just collect paychecks.

  • Alex S

    that 1 inning took a half hour

  • http://twitter.com/riddering Riddering

    Very nice K there from Andy.

    Now I’d like to see the Yanks make the top half innings a bit longer.

    • Brazilian Yankee

      They need to do a better job, but so does the ump. If the strikezone remains from batters box to batters box, they’ll have no chance.

  • Esteban

    Has Ryan Howard EVER hit an offspeed pitch from a lefty?

  • Girardi out to the mound

    Cue the AL pitchers try to pitch AROD inside talk

  • slappy white

    Our hitters need to quit getting themselves behind in counts and we’ll hit this prick….predicting a big game outta swish

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

      It’s not easy to stopped getting behind in the count with a wide zone.

  • Souter Fell

    let’s hope Kate’s period ended over the travel day

  • http://twitter.com/hopjake Jake H

    Ryan Howard should see no FB this whole series.

  • Eirias

    Time for Hamels to break out the Spike Changeup.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Cole Dick. Let’s make him pay.

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

    That is certainly a way to get on base.

  • Esteban

    Classy Phillies fans, cheering an HBP

  • Stadium Garlic Fries

    Thanks Cole for hitting him..now u will pay for it..

  • Souter Fell

    i guess you take what you can get

  • slappy white

    thanks Cole…keep pounding the hitters

  • Alex S

    F U Hammels
    good to see Arod on base tho

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    Idiot phillies fans applaud a clear mistake.

  • southernyankeefan

    Nice lets go Jorge.

  • ShuutoHeat

    Yuk yuk yuk, that is so funny…. fucking McCarver is stupid.

  • http://twitter.com/riddering Riddering

    A-Rod only took one pitch there. Way to rack up Hamels pitch count.

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

      lol

  • Alex S

    BALK!

  • Sam

    Elston Howard was such a great Yankee great. McCarver is a great announcer great.

  • Alex S

    so lucky feliz juggled it there

  • http://www.newyorkjets.com/image_assets/8997/052109_coach_rex_ryan_presser_320.jpg The Honorable Congressman Mondesi

    “Elston Howard… The great Yankee great.”

    Tim McCarver. Wordsmith.

    (shoots self in head with finger-gun)

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    haha arods like anybody? anybody else see that?

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Awful AB Posada.

  • Esteban

    The excellent umpiring continues

  • Girardi out to the mound

    “The great Yankee great”

    glad these guys get paid for this

    Also, did the Philly fans just cheer Arod getting hit? Intelligent.

  • Souter Fell

    c’mon boys, let’s not let this guy have a pitch count in the teens by the end of this inning

  • http://twitter.com/hopjake Jake H

    Jorge no work count, Jorge swing!

  • HolyGhostClaw

    Dad: “Come on Cole!”
    Cole: “Who err ewe?”

    Cole Hamels’ voice makes me want to punch my own face.

    • Eirias

      I’ll take pleasure in gutting you, boy.

    • http://twitter.com/riddering Riddering

      Save your face, punch a baby.

  • Souter Fell

    cano, do me a favor and hit one bery bery far

  • Quikksand

    Let’s go yankees

  • Alex S

    come on robbie!

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

    Wave those towels, you mindless drones!

  • Brazilian Yankee

    It’s like this team is not allowed to have good ABs.

  • Pasqua

    Well, see, that doesn’t help matters, Robbie.

  • Mike Nitabach

    I hope it’s just the location of the microphones, because otherwise it is embarrassing how much louder the Phillies fans are than the Yankees fans were games one and two. Do you think Yankee Stadium was just filled with corporate dudes and not real fans?

    • Pasqua

      I wouldn’t worry about it. Plus, CBBP is significantly smaller than YS3.

    • Ghost of Scott Brosius

      They also scream at every pitch thinking it’s a strike. A stadium of wild screaming monkeys would also be louder than YS3. And this wouldn’t bother me.

    • http://twitter.com/riddering Riddering

      No.

    • whozat

      No. I think that you bought into a dumb narrative and that game 3 sounds exactly like game 2. Game 1, they got steamrolled by cliff lee…not a lot to cheer.

      • http://www.newyorkjets.com/image_assets/8997/052109_coach_rex_ryan_presser_320.jpg The Honorable Congressman Mondesi

        Or maybe the crowd at Yankee Stadium isn’t as loud as it used to be. I’ve been at every postseason game and I’m of that opinion. Does that mean I bought into a stupid narrative?

        Every response doesn’t have to drip with condescension.

  • JFH

    good grief robbie

  • Jay

    Good one Robbie. You let a grooved fastball down the middle go by and then you whiff on a piece of shit pitch.

  • EB

    Robbie takes two fb’s down the middle then swings at one at his ankles… bizarre world

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    really not liking cano taking pitches. lets some hittable ones go by and then swings at garbage

  • Stadium Garlic Fries

    I will be pissed if Yankees don’t hit Hammels hard..

    • baka nakamura

      you must be super pissed.

  • Souter Fell

    geez, come on boys

  • slappy white

    Cano watches 2 right down the middle and swings at strike 3 a foot inside….WTF?

    • Tank the Frank

      Story of the world series so far for the Yankees offense.

  • southernyankeefan

    Hey swisher popped up…again.

  • baka nakamura

    swish pops out. there’s a surprise.

  • Jay

    Whoa. I’m shocked. Swisher popped out.

  • Quikksand

    looks like we got ourselves another pitching showdown

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    add another inning to the count of how many our offense has slept through

  • whozat

    So…wait, this guy is getting slapped around the ballpark by every other team he faces, and NOW no one can see more than 3 pitches in an AB?

    • Brazilian Yankee

      Nick Blackburn, Joe Saunders first act. Same situation.

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

    Sherlock Holmes: Watson YOUR wallet?

  • Alex S

    fuck fuck fuck mother motherfuck motherfuck fuck fuck!

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Swisher with yet another great AB and a popout. At least he keeps the clubhouse loose.

  • slappy white

    damn, the offense needs to WAKE UP

  • C

    The offense needs to step the fuck up and put together some quality ABs

  • Count Crapulent says boo to you sir

    If we ever toweled up at Yankee Stadium I would never go there again.

  • DreDog

    Not worried. Hamels 2nd and 3rd time through the line-up will not be pretty.

    • Pasqua

      This is what I’m hoping for.

  • hal

    he was really really good in BP

    • Pasqua

      So was Pettitte, I bet.

  • Pasqua

    I don’t say this with the belief that the Yanks won’t hit Hamels, but if the trend does continue, at what point do you stop slobbering over the pitchers and decide that the Yanks are just pressing?

    • Ghost of Scott Brosius

      Ive already decided that after the pedro game. He knows how to pitch but there were plenty of hittable balls. We’re just missing them.

    • claybeez

      My question is if it is pressing, how do you counteract it? I’ve been looking for that answer and the Yankee coach/mgr who knows it for a number of years now.

      • Pasqua

        Well, to borrow from the tired cliche…I guess you counteract it when one guy puts a swing on one and “opens the floodgates.”

  • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

    We go through this every day. If the opposing pitcher is throwing strikes, it becomes very difficult to have good at bats (meaning take pitches). In fact, Cano’s at bat was a perfect example of the futility of taking pitches just for the sake of it. It puts you in a hole. He should not have swung at that pitch, but you see that with 2 strikes- bad swings.

    • Pasqua

      Yes. Strike one is a beautiful thing. Ask AJ.

  • Tank the Frank

    Honestly, the Yankees don’t have a prayer in this series if the offense keeps up these awful at bats. I don’t think I’m out of line saying that. This is not the same offense I watched this season.

  • Alex S

    wtf andy come on

    • whozat

      Well, when you throw the same pitches as the other guy, but they get called balls for you, it’s tough.

  • slappy white

    Is that Steve Phillips standing behind home plate ?

  • southernyankeefan

    FUCK FUCK FUCK.

  • baka nakamura

    fuck

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

    Wow, Werth went down and got that one.

  • Alex S

    FML werth went golfing

  • Brazilian Yankee

    So that’s what a real offense looks like. Awesome.

    • Zack

      what does that even mean?

      • Zack

        you must be talking about their lead off batter with an .290 OBP, or their clean up hitter who hits .200 against LHP, or their 6th place hitter hitting .233 post-ASB

    • whozat

      A real offense looks like solo homers?

      Yeah, if only the Yankees would hit some of those…oh, wait.

    • Alex S

      wowowow 1 run and they’re the greatest offense in the world

    • http://twitter.com/riddering Riddering

      Seriously?

      Go sit down in the time out chair, read some stats on the Yankees offense in 2009 and think about what you just said.

  • JFH

    saw that coming a mile away

  • Quikksand

    Just like that, Phillies strike 1st

  • JSquared

    players with girl hair >

  • swisher’s fauxhawk

    Why is their home run horn a whale song?

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    wow. looked like he barely hit that well at first.

  • Esteban

    Werth is pretty good.

  • http://www.newyorkjets.com/image_assets/8997/052109_coach_rex_ryan_presser_320.jpg The Honorable Congressman Mondesi

    Wow. Not exactly a mighty stroke by Werth there. That’s a powerful guy, I guess.

  • Quikksand

    I hope the Yankees offense gets it going.

  • slappy white

    bottom line is we better start hitting the fucking ball cause theyre gonna score runs

    • JFH

      agreed. pettitte throwing a lot of pitches and missing spots. gives up a double while i type this. we need to score runs cause pettitte does not have A game right now.

  • Stadium Garlic Fries

    what is up with all the hitters making Vladi proud this postseason..

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

    What’s that girl doing in the dugout!!!??

    /Keith Hernandez’d

    • Marcus

      Come on, I love you ladies. Always have.

  • Jersey

    Remember the last time they scored first, and then we won?

    • Zack

      remember those 50 come from behind wins the Yankees had this year?

  • Esteban

    Bandbox

  • southernyankeefan

    Well this is not looking good.

    • Pasqua

      Rivera for 7 and 2/3!!!!

  • Alex S

    get your shit together andy

  • baka nakamura

    pete happy. this isn’t shaping up well.

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

      Who cares what that fat fuck has say anymore?

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

    You can’t let Feliz and his noodle bat hit it that far.

  • ShuutoHeat

    that was dead center, give the man credit for not getting a HR

  • whozat

    wow, that was a horrendous pitch

  • Esteban

    Terrible location

  • Brazilian Yankee

    88mph down the middle.

    • whozat

      90, but who’s counting.

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    We have got to score runs in this ballpark. makes YS3 look like citi field. jesus.

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

      Citizen’s Bank is one of the OG bandboxes.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Andy has no command

  • Quikksand

    I already can’t watch!

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

    Lucky that one stayed in. No more cookies Andy.

  • slappy white

    at this rate Andy pitches 4 weak

  • whozat

    Gunshy, or shitty?

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

    I’m pretty sure this is old unintentional intentional walk to get to the pitcher.

    • Randy A.

      Lets hope Cole has a propensity for grounding into double plays then.

    • Chris

      With 1 out why would you do that?

    • Brazilian Yankee

      Pitching around RUiz is not exactly something to be proud of.

  • Pasqua

    Whenever mainstream media says that the Yanks will eat the opposing pitcher for lunch and our pitcher will lock it down, be very afraid.

    /superstition’d

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

    Let’s go. Free out!

  • whozat

    Hamels has gotten that call

  • Alex S

    COME ON! now we have to watch a spot on Werth????

  • http://twitter.com/hopjake Jake H

    Andy has looked terrible so far. Also I wouldn’t call Jayson W a star. A career year yep. I guess you only have to have 1 great year to be a star.

    • EB

      Gary Matthews Jr?

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

    Are you kidding me?

  • baka nakamura

    you. have. to. be. kidding.

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

    oh COME ON.

  • JFH

    unreal

  • Alex S

    a motherfucking bunt hit, get your damn shit together

  • whozat

    Wow. They give you an out, and you can’t even get it. Inexcusable.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Fuck you Posada.

  • Pasqua

    YAAAAAAYYYYY, bunt! Cole Hamels, you’re so dreamy!

  • Esteban

    Not looking good at this moment

    • Esteban

      blarghhh

  • E-ROC

    That works.

  • http://twitter.com/hopjake Jake H

    Andy has no idea what is going on. What a moron.

  • Hall and Nokes

    Andy is going to have to be crafty and uber-intelligent tonight, like Pedro.

  • Alex S

    DP pleeeeeease last thing i want to see is rollins with a hit or walk

  • Pasqua

    Pettitte’s just hoping the ball goes where he wants it to.

  • Quikksand

    I’m in panic mode

  • JackC

    Sheesh. Feeling uneasy

  • JFH

    no command

  • Alex S

    40 pitches already

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    We knew the phillies had a very good lineup. Great lineup, hittable pitching. If we want to win this series, we are going to have to wake up and really show our offensive potential. Otherwise, we are in some serious trouble. We can’t expect the starters to keep blanking people, especially not in this bandbox.

  • E-ROC

    Pettitte has nothing right now.

  • Alex S

    how about a strike andy?

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Horrible. The team really showed up tonight.

  • Pasqua

    Well, the Phils fans are right about one thing…we are definitely sucking.

  • BigBlueAL

    Dont see Pettitte on 3 days rest with the way this game is going.

  • http://twitter.com/hopjake Jake H

    Andy has no command at all tonight.

  • baka nakamura

    this is killing me.

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    jesus christ. at this rate i’m worried about the bullpens. we could have to send gaudin out there against all these lefties.

  • Alex S

    lets hope hammels implodes next inning

    • Ghost of Scott Brosius

      Im not optimistic

  • Pasqua

    Holy shit.

    Chad?

  • Henry Triana

    wow.

  • bobtaco

    May Day, May Day…

  • BigBlueAL

    The Knicks are looking better tonight than the Yankees.

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

    Inexcusable.

  • Jay

    Oh I just love giving up walks to guys with an OBP of .297

  • Alex S

    how the fuck do you walk motherfucking rollins

  • NYFan50

    Better a walk than a bases clearing double. With the command he’s got right now…

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    Panic. Panic. Panic. Panic. Panic.

  • DreDog

    Rollins is looking like a good batter? WTF?!?!?!?!

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Big game Andy, right?

  • Girardi out to the mound

    Jimmy Rollins. The guy with a .296 OBP now has 4 walks this series.

    How the hell does that happen?

    • http://twitter.com/hopjake Jake H

      No idea. It’s really pretty pathetic.

  • http://twitter.com/hopjake Jake H

    Hey Joe, why not send Eiland out there?

  • Tank the Frank

    I’ve never seen Andy look so shell shocked.

    • Pasqua

      2001 World Series. Game 6.

    • bobtaco

      see Phoenix, 2001

  • Alex S

    DP

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    Is Mccarver seriously blaming our defense for the bunt?

    • whozat

      I would. No one took charge and fielded it. They handed us an out, and we soiled it. This game is probably still 1-0 if we do our fucking job.

      • Ghost of Scott Brosius

        It would have taken a very very good throw and tough play from somebody to make that play. Sometimes it’s just in a perfect spot, you just have to put it in your pocket.

  • slappy white

    Suzyn Waldman on the radio acting suprised that theyre moving around in the bullpen

  • whozat

    Wow, Victorino…why swing?

  • southernyankeefan

    That is fucking unacceptable. WTF Andy act like you fucking know.

  • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

    I hated the intentional walk to Ruiz there with one out. Hated it. Attack the 8 hitter and face the pitcher with 2 outs. So stupid.

    • claybeez

      Clear as day.

    • Dave G

      I don’t think it was intentional. Andy has nothing.

    • JFH

      that was not intentional. he has no command right now.

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

      Considering his inability to locate I don’t think it’s fair to assume he intentionally walked Ruiz.

    • Girardi out to the mound

      If that really was an unintentional intentional walk that would be utterly stupid.

  • http://twitter.com/riddering Riddering

    Christ on a pogo stick.

    • NYTraveller

      ietc Melky gets us going in the 3rd (fingers crossed)

  • JMK aka The Overshare

    I can’t remember the last time I’ve seen Pettitte look this clueless.

  • Dave G

    This is working out great.

  • Alex S

    3-0 on a girly throw from damon, we better pray that our lineup starts hitting

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

      That run scores anyway, look how deep it was.

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

        Even with Ruiz running? I think there could’ve been a play(on a perfect throw) with a non girl arm out there.

        • Chris

          Maybe if Ichiro were out there and Ruiz pulled a hammy.

      • Alex S

        true

    • southernyankeefan

      I dont think Damons arm mattered that was deep enough.

    • JMK aka The Overshare

      It didn’t matter who threw that. 1999 Andruw Jones could have been there and the runner would have scored.

    • Tony

      Yeah, that’s a routine gun down on the tag from third.

    • whozat

      You’re gonna put that on DAMON?

      How about getting on Pettitte for throwing a hittable pitch 0-2 to a guy who swung at everything you threw him?

  • Pasqua

    You can pile on for this comment if you want, but for a team that’s pressing at the plate already, I am hating being down (at least) 3 early

    • http://twitter.com/hopjake Jake H

      They have looked terrible. I’m really getting sick of this offense.

    • slappy white

      I agree but its hard to say theyre pressing when some of them (Cano) look like they dont give a fuck

    • Joe D.

      I won’t pile on you.

      You’re not crying and whining like half the people here right now.

    • Ghost of Scott Brosius

      Totally agreed. The fact is we should be down 2-0 with our offensive ineptitude, but aj and mo bailed us out. We have got to wake the fuck up at the plate.

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

      Yeah, when we’re hitting great I love being down 3.

      • Pasqua

        I think you know what I mean, Drew.

  • http://twitter.com/hopjake Jake H

    That is just the stupidest pitch ever. Guy has looked terrible so what does Andy do. He throws one that is an easy pop up. Throw a pitch in the dirt.

    • Alex S

      “That is just the stupidest pitch ever”
      -whats dumber the pitch or that quote?

  • Brazilian Yankee

    0-2 pitch right down the pipe. 3-0 with Utley due up and the way this shitty offense is playing, this one is close to being over.

    • NYTraveller

      Did you serve in the French army or something? Surrender is a little premature in the 2nd inning. Keep the faith.

  • NYTraveller

    Just get Utley. Gving away 2 here sucks but the offense has to step up sooner or later. Tonight would be good.

  • Alex S

    Am i hearing mixed lets go Yankees/ Phillies chants?

  • Alex S

    these fans are relentless…….

    • Pasqua

      …as they should be.

  • Esteban

    Andy’s not get help with these calls.

    • southernyankeefan

      Well the offense better step the fuck up and pick andy up.

    • claybeez

      Worse, he’s not helping himself.

    • Pasqua

      The umps are SO far down on my list of responsible parties at the moment that I could give a fuck what the strike zone is.

  • Rob H.

    You could have had the best arm in the world out there on that sac fly, you weren’t throwing the guy out at the plate. The ball was hit too far.

    • Brazilian Yankee

      Agreed, that was really deep.

  • DreDog

    You know what? We are going to see a classic Ace win tonight. Mark my words.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    10 pitches per out so far for big game Andy.

    • Rob H.

      jesus dude, knock it off.

    • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

      Seriously, ripping on Pettitte now? Are there any Yankees you do like?

      • Zack

        Only the guys with 0.00 ERAs and 1.00 AVGs

  • baka nakamura

    how long’s he been out there? seems like an hour.

  • Randy A.

    Dont get too down. It’s the 2nd inning.

  • Esteban

    Could have been worse

  • Pasqua

    Good…for….you?

  • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

    He’s owning the lefties, but cant deal with the righties.

    • JMK aka The Overshare

      Strange, isn’t it?

      • whozat

        …isn’t that not weird at all for left handed pitchers? That’s why you try to load the lineup with righties when you face a lefty pitcher.

    • Ghost of Scott Brosius

      platoon with gaudin?

      • Jersey

        IETC

  • JMK aka The Overshare

    I’m about to take up smoking again.

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

      Looks like you picked the wrong week to quit smoking.

      • JMK aka The Overshare

        I quit a year ago.

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

          whoosh

      • Jersey

        Looks like you picked the wrong week to quit sniffing glue.

      • DreDog

        Looks like I picked the wrong time to quit sniffing glue.

    • slappy white

      I got a guy in Bed Stuy if you need the hookup….oh wait, you mean cigarettes ?

    • baka nakamura

      starting to drink a little heavier here.

    Yay, the inning is over!

  • Quikksand

    what a nightmare inning

  • Alex S

    50 pitches through 2 innings. inexcusable. someone wake this lineup the fuck up

    • claybeez

      How about K Long?

  • Pasqua

    At least one back NOW. Let’s do it.

  • ansky

    Hey guys I just got back from trick-or-treating with my daughter…wtf is going on?? why dont we have a hit off Hamels?

    • aCb

      because we are having bad at bats so far

    • http://www.pinstripesplus.com theriverdog

      don’t ask, but we’ll have em all back right quick

    • Ghost of Scott Brosius

      Hamels was assasinated by a lone gunman. He was replaced by matt stairs in an emergency role, and stairs has shut us down. There. Now you’re all caught up.

    • Zack

      because its only been 2 innings

  • Kevin in CT

    I want to take a shit on Victorino’s face

    • Jersey

      Don’t they have Meetups for that?

  • JFH

    ok. andy needs to regroup. keep it at three. if he can keep it there, we can come back.

  • http://www.pinstripesplus.com theriverdog

    goddamn it I hate gimmick towels.

    • Pasqua

      HA! Isn’t it amazing how frustration breeds rage at the dumbest things? If they show that fucking “All You Need Is Love” commercial again I’ll break my television. That’s where I’m at.

      • Alex S

        i kno exactly what you mean

      • http://www.pinstripesplus.com theriverdog

        you better get ready to cash in on the warranty cuz i think youre seeing 14 more of those commercials.

  • DGeezy

    alright whats done is done, lets go out there and put up some runs

  • http://twitter.com/hopjake Jake H

    I’m curious about something. Doesn’t it seem that when Andy pitches on a rain delay he isn’t sharp at all? I seem to recall games like this in the past.

  • JackC

    I have a tough time remembering what it’s like to feel confident in the Yankees answering a 3 run inning with three or 4 of their own

    • NYTraveller

      Really? Think back a week or so and then re-run the highlight film of the season

  • The Three Amigos

    we have a pathetic offense. I love how they all slump at the same time! And this umps strike zone is pathetic as well.

  • Souter Fell

    we can get these back, hamels is all over

  • Alex S

    come on melk

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    Inside on 2-0.

  • Alex S

    dammit

  • nyyank_1

    Is it just me or does Philly stadium sound 10x louder on TV than Yankee Stadium? Don’t know if it is the stadium (I didn’t make it out there this year) or the rowdiness of the fans.

    Our offense better wake up or we’re in for a very long night.

    • whozat

      It’s you. This is pretty much how the games sounded at YS during this postseason. Except game 1 of the WS, when it was clear that Cliff Lee could do whatever he wanted and still dominate the Yanks.

  • Henry Triana

    He’s sucking ass with regular rest, I can imagine with 3 days rest.

  • baka nakamura

    there goes this inning.

  • dygg

    Why has everyone tried to pull everything for the last three games?

  • dalelama

    Where are the guys who always defend Posada ? He confused Pettite on the bunt and didn’t field the ball. Andy thought Jorge was going to field it so he didn’t. Just another small example of Jorge’s low IQ costing us.

    • Zack

      Posada is better than Molina.
      There i defended him.

    • claybeez

      What are you gonna do? He’s not Jonny Bench. He hits a little bit, though. I don’t mean to say it’s not frustrating. But, he is who he is.

  • Salty Buggah

    OK guys, I’m back. Let’s get some fuckin runs. I hate rain delayed games. Our offense seems to go cold.

    • Pasqua

      I WISH it was the rain delay that made them cold.

  • ansky

    Ok Cliff Lee I can understand, Pedro maybe…but Cole Hamels? The way he’s been pitching this postseason? WTF!!

    • Ghost of Scott Brosius

      It leads one to the conclusion that this has nothing to do with the pitcher and everything to do with our lineup pressing.

    • Esteban

      You can’t understand how Cole Hamels is pitching well? He has the same FIP as last year.

  • EB

    hamels gettin a big zone

  • slappy white

    Now we go 1-2-3 in 2 minutes ? Come on Jeter get a hit

  • Jersey

    2nd time through the order. Let’s roll.

    • Brazilian Yankee

      Roll towards a 1-2-3 inning.

  • charlespoet

    From the comments and the 5 mins listening to Morgan and Miller, we are fucked. Hope it is really not that bad but the post don’t give me confidence that the Yanks are going to win the game, let alone the series. No pitching tonight and still gross ineptness at the plate. Tell me I am wrong, can’t watch the game right now

    • Joe D.

      You’re wrong.

      Glad I could help.

    • Pasqua

      Did Morgan compare the Phillies to the Big Red Machine at any point in those 5 minutes?

    • Kevin in CT

      Just pound Halloween candy, it’s more rewarding

  • Girardi out to the mound

    Jimmy Rollins has a .545 OBP so far this series

  • MAMO

    Hamels doesn’t look all that great. I hope they get to him soon.

  • slappy white

    this is getting reeeediculous

  • swisher’s fauxhawk

    Of course the ball hangs up there.

  • Jay

    Great. Way to put some pressure on Hamels. I’m not one of the ledge jumpers and even I’m getting antsy. Hamels doesn’t even have very good stuff contrary to what the EFFING MORON Joe Buck says. They just look clueless. Waiting waiting waiting for that perfect pitch instead of being aggressive.

  • Tank Foster

    If they don’t score a run next inning, they are in big trouble. They aren’t making Hamels break a sweat.
