Settle down, Andy. Hold it there.

Categories : Game Threads, Playoffs


  1. Joe R says:

    Andy has nothing working tonight so far. Ugh.

  2. BigBlueAL says:

    Knicks have forced overtime!!!! Oh wait wrong blog….

  3. G FUnk says:

    It doesnt matter how any of our pitchers do… we cant get ANYTHING going offensively

  4. Tank Foster says:

    Why can’t the Yankees HIT?

  5. JSquared says:

    Need to stop worrying about the other pitcher’s pitch count, and get him taken out of the game for giving up too many runs, not too many pitches!!!!

  6. Jay says:

    Per PeteAbe: Yankees now 14 of 72 (.194) in Series with 24 K, 1-9 with RISP, 4 runs in 20 innings.

  7. Mike Pop says:

    Game is far from over.

    Just settle down AP.

  8. baka nakamura says:

    this is getting really frustrating. hope andy gets it together and ends this inning quickly.

  9. Bob Stone says:

    Very discouraging. Let’s get going Yanks.

  10. Esteban says:

    Mike calling out the commenters on Twitter. I like it. Relax people, this game is nowhere near over yet.

  11. dan says:

    Sorry ass offense

    • whozat says:

      Melky drilled one, the pitcher made an out, and Jeter saw 6 pitches and hit a nice liner on a tough pitch that happened to be at someone. That’s not really “sorry ass”

    • Doug says:

      Sorry ass, offense.

      Sorry, ass offense.

      Punctuation fun!

  12. DreDog says:

    Ace is going to win this game with a patented 2+ innings of work. It wouldn’t be a postseason if Ace didn’t vulture a win. Calm down.

  13. Joe D. says:

    Bump in the road.

    I am simply not worried yet.

    • Tank the Frank says:

      Have you been watching these games? This team looks lost.

      • Joe D. says:

        I’m looking at the 4.7 runs per game postseason and 10 quality starts in 11 tries heading into tonight.

        Oh, and I’m looking at 103 wins in the AL East, the toughest division in baseball.

        Not worried.

        If the Yanks go down 3 games to one, then call me. Then you can hear me worried.

  14. Jay says:

    Howard has struck out 6 straight at bats and they’re talking about what Halloween costumes he likes.

  15. Reggie C. says:

    I hope the Knicks can inspire the Yanks tonight.

  16. theriverdog says:

    no watch Andy quietly put away everyone.

  17. Pasqua says:

    The main difference between Howard and A-Rod right now is that I think Howard might go homicidal soon.

  18. Salty Buggah says:

    Yanks offense is due to explode on Hamels.

  19. Riddering says:

    If the game is already over, why don’t those of you who believe that go out to a nice party and leave this to people who can handle tense series?

  20. Tank Foster says:

    If they don’t score a run or at least make Hamels throw some pitches this next inning, they are in serious trouble. They are behind, Andy is throwing tons of pitches, and Hamels is hardly working.

  21. Joker, The says:

    I’m going to be sick. We are so screwed….this offense is just pathetic and embarassing, to say the least. I hate this.

  22. Salty Buggah says:

    yesmichaelkay twitter:

    Hey fans! Call or text your friends. We could be witnessing history – a woman just touched my arm. Hamels also has a no-hitter.


  23. Ghost of Scott Brosius says:

    It would be nice if we could at least get into their bullpen.

  24. dan says:

    In a pregame interview Andy said if you give up 3 or more runs dont expect to win a playoff game, even he lost confidence in our bats. He better not give up any more runs!

  25. Stadium Garlic Fries says:

    Andy needed this fast inning..

  26. Jay says:

    All right. Nice fast inning. Let’s DO THIS!!

  27. Drew says:

    Haha Melky with the pump fake.

  28. ansky says:

    nice fake throw by Melky..fuck those fans.

  29. Pasqua says:

    Okay. Stabilized. Good. Now the middle of the order.

    Statement inning, anyone?

  30. Alex S says:

    ok good 10 pitch inning nice turnaround Andy, now lets score

  31. Michael Kay says:

    watching the yankees at bats this series keeps reminding me of this


    I can just picture Damon saying “Too Good.”

  32. Riddering says:


    Nice, short inning from Andy.

  33. baka nakamura says:

    that was sweet. now hit some balls please.

  34. JoeFromBayRidge says:

    I do agree with other comments – Hamels isn’t dazzling anyone right now. He’s begging to get hit.

  35. Mariano's Pimp Hand says:

    That quick inning helped get Andy’s pitch count down to a reasonable 60 through 3.

  36. claybeez says:

    OK. Good job by Andy. More pitching like that and maybe he can give the team 6.

  37. G FUnk says:

    Ok… 123 inning… time to get some of these runs back… lets go … YANKS!!!

  38. Randy A. says:

    We are not out of this game yet. Even if it gets to the 9th inning remember…their closer is Brad Lidge

  39. Salty Buggah says:

    I’m disappointed by some of you in here. Its 3 fuckin runs!

  40. Jay says:

    That DJ Hero game looks like the suck.

  41. dkidd says:

    nice bounceback inning for andy

    i believe we will score more than 3 runs tonight

    confidence level = shaken not stirred

  42. Tank Foster says:

    Runs, now.

  43. marc resnick says:

    I feel like the yankee hitters are ridiculous rhythm hitters. Maybe its the switch hitters mainly? Sado, tex and swish have had a hard time really getting it rolling. I wonder how the yankee hitters performed all year following an off day. Plus, they have faced a ton of right lefty right lefty match ups. I think this 3 game series will be good for the hitters half way through tomorrows game.

  44. Tank Foster says:

    Nice 2 pitch at bat Donny Jamon.

  45. whozat says:

    Dude, can Andy get that fucking strike called off the plate on the outside?

  46. Pasqua says:

    NOT what I had in mind, Johnny. How are we supposed to “cowboy up” when you keep doing that?

  47. Mike Pop says:

    Be on the mark, Tex.

  48. Tank Foster says:

    Now a changeup and Tex will Whiff

  49. Marc says:

    Time to start swinging!

  50. JMK aka The Overshare says:

    Johnny Damon continues to divide by zero.

  51. Jersey says:

    There you go Tex. Good AB.

  52. Pasqua says:

    That was a BIG non-call. Finally.

  53. swisher's fauxhawk says:

    Looked like Tex got away with that one.

    I’ll take it.

  54. Salty Buggah says:

    Cmon A-Rod, no DP. Go back to beast mode again PLEASE!

  55. DreDog says:

    This is how it starts.

  56. Tank Foster says:

    A-Rod. Be a star.

  57. Jay says:

    Ok! Let’s get something going here. Cmon A-Rod. Shut everybody up.

    Hit it out and tell them to STFU.

  58. baka nakamura says:

    cmon a-rod. shake em up out there.

  59. Reggie C. says:

    Alex. … now would be a good time to snap out of it.

  60. Ghost of Scott Brosius says:

    Wow i was waiting for him to punch out mark. would not have been surprised with our luck.

  61. Mike Pop says:

    Here we go Alex.

  62. Alex S says:

    Come on Arod lift one out of here

  63. Mike Pop says:

    This is how we do it.


  64. Jersey says:

    There you go hoss! Get some!

  65. Reggie C. says:

    Is that now gone?


    Good hit Arod.

  66. Riddering says:



  67. JMK aka The Overshare says:

    So close! But I love it.

  68. Tank Foster says:

    Thank you Al.

  69. NYFan50 says:

    Alright! One single away from making this a 1 run game.

  70. Joe D. says:


    Damn right.

  71. claybeez says:

    That’s a start.

  72. Salty Buggah says:

    Nice job A-Rod!!!

    Cmon with the RISP hit someone!

  73. Alex S says:

    yea baby! here we go! i thought that ball was hit terribly

  74. baka nakamura says:

    whooooa, hr!

  75. Jay says:

    That’s a home run!

  76. JMK aka The Overshare says:

    Should be a home run!

  77. ansky says:

    Damn i thought that might go…but i’ll take it.

  78. Pasqua says:

    hit the camera! gone?!!

  79. NYFan50 says:

    HOLY SHIT that should have been a home run!

  80. claybeez says:

    That’s a HR!

  81. Reggie C. says:

    That’s a HOMERUN!!!

  82. Will says:

    thats a homerun!

  83. dkidd says:

    home run!!!!!!


  84. Souter Fell says:

    does the caemra count as a homerun?

  85. Joe D. says:

    That’s a fucking home run.

  86. RalphieD says:

    3-2…thats a homer!

  87. Alex S says:

    HR, check it!

  88. whozat says:


  89. ansky says:

    thats a HR!!!

  90. Quikksand says:

    that should be a HR!!!

  91. Ghost of Scott Brosius says:

    Home run! Replay it!

  92. MAMO says:

    ITS AN A-BOMB!!!

  93. Drew says:



  94. Zack says:

    what dumbass put the camera hanging OVER the wall? thats HR!

  95. Big Mike says:

    Yankee’s offensive choke >>>>>>>>>>> Jean Van de Velde 1999 Open Champion choke

  96. Tank the Frank says:


  97. Salty Buggah says:

    A-Rod! Beast mode! That’s a HR!

  98. Souter Fell says:

    they better fucking check this

  99. brian paul says:

    i love how that hit was as exciting as it gets, and mccarver didn’t even stop telling his dumb story. you think he’d announce with a little bit more excitement in his voice…

    let’s see it go to replay.

  100. V says:

    It’s time for Melky RF, Gardner CF, Hairston LF. Damon and Swisher are automatic outs, and we might as well get better defense.

  101. Mike Axisa says:

    Replay that shit, yo.

  102. Tank Foster says:

    We NEED this replay call. Please do the right thing umps!!!!!!

  103. Mike Pop says:

    3-2 ladies and gents. New ballgame.

  104. Esteban says:

    That’s a HR

  105. Brazilian Yankee says:

    Don’t they have to watch the replay? It’s a HR.

  106. Joker, The says:


    I swear if they fucking say it wasn’t I’m going to kill everyone I know.

  107. Hall and Nokes says:

    Shouldn’t we be able to get the view from that camera?

  108. Jersey says:

    CALL IT BLUE…!!!

  109. southernyankeefan says:

    Thats a homer

  110. dkidd says:

    can we see the footage taken from that camera?

    that would be cool shot

  111. Reggie C. says:

    “Was it going down when it hit the camera??”

    McCarver … are you fucking retarded?

  112. Stadium Garlic Fries says:

    that is a fucking HR

  113. Girardi out to the mound says:

    Yes. Lets waste 5 minutes with an umpire conference when it would take about 20 seconds on a replay to show that it is a HR

  114. Quikksand says:

    It would have left he park if the camera wasn’t there

  115. ansky says:

    sweet HR and Hamels has to wait it out.

  116. Esteban says:

    Joe Buck really doesn’t want this to be a HR

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

    don’t give me that ‘inconclusive’ cop out, please MO

  118. Ghost of Scott Brosius says:

    Buck didn’t even act like the ball was hit and it’s gonna end up a homer

  119. JackC says:

    Come on Blue, get something right

  120. Will says:

    they better reverse that shit.

  121. Zack says:

    WAIT- the replay is going to take too long!

    /anti-instant replay fans

  122. Hall and Nokes says:

    Why do all of the umps need to go inside? This is cracking me up in a way.

  123. swisher's fauxhawk says:

    A-Rod shits on the right field camera.

  124. Tank the Frank says:

    The umps better not FUCKING blow this!!

  125. brian paul says:

    ha! they’ll look at it on… THIS monitor.

  126. southernyankeefan says:

    seriously thats what they have to look at replay on???? that is weak as shit.

  127. HolyGhostClaw says:

    The Phillies fans think the umps went inside because they all got upset.

  128. Stadium Garlic Fries says:

    McCarver..this is not football..we are not checking the plane of the camera …if it hit the camera..it is HR

  129. Jersey says:

    FUCK YEAH!!!!!!!!

  130. Ghost of Scott Brosius says:

    I think we might get screwed on this.

  131. Will says:


  132. Salty Buggah says:

    A-Rod!!!!!!!!!!!! Clutch mothafucker!

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

    let’s go ny!

  134. Souter Fell says:

    yeah baby, welcome to the world series arod

  135. Jay says:


  136. JobaWockeeZ says:

    AROD IS A GODDD!!!!!!!

  137. Doug says:

    A (very delayed) A-BOMB!!!

  138. baka nakamura says:


  139. Tank Foster says:

    Thanks Al.

  140. Jake H says:

    Right call. THis needs to spark the O

  141. southernyankeefan says:

    YEAh baby

  142. Reggie C. says:

    Massively clutch.

    Thanks Arod!

  143. DreDog says:


  144. Pasqua says:

    I hereby announce my love of all things instant replay!

  145. Bob C says:

    fox cameras FTL

  146. claybeez says:

    Good job, blue…for a change

  147. Chris says:

    What is Manuel going to argue? Does he think his eyes are better than replay?

  148. Alex S says:

    YEA BABY!!!!!!!! did anyone else feel that ball was hit terribly i thought it was gonna end up a foul ball. Arod lifted it out

    • baka nakamura says:

      i really thought it was out as soon as he hit it though it didn’t go as far as i anticipated.

  149. Riddering says:

    Hell yeah instant replay makes the game better. HELL YEAH.

    Now can the media focus on Howard’s Ks since Alex is productive?

  150. Mike Pop says:

    Omg this game isn’t ova!

  151. JSquared says:


  152. Joe D. says:

    That a fucking home run!

    Cheers to the umps on getting together and checking that shit out.

    And BIG Cheers to AROD, with another postseason dinger!

  153. Ghost of Scott Brosius says:

    Alex says lets party like its the ALCS!

  154. Salty Buggah says:

    CENTAUR FTW!!!!!!!!!!!

  155. whozat says:

    Now, why does Manuel go out there? What, are they gonna go look again?

  156. JMK aka The Overshare says:

    This is why we need instant replay in baseball.

  157. Sam says:

    Way to give Hamels a breather, Jorge.

  158. Drew says:

    tied with Bernie?

  159. G FUnk says:


  160. Ghost of Scott Brosius says:

    Posada = not even trying?

  161. JMK aka The Overshare says:

    Do we all feel better now, guys?

  162. JobaWockeeZ says:

    But the game was slowed down11111111111
    WAH WAH WAH!!!!

  163. DreDog says:

    They have his timing!!! He is going to get crushed the 3rd time through!!!

  164. ansky says:

    good one Robbie..good one!

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

    Robby will break out, no worries

  166. Jay says:

    So now they’re going back and replaying the pitch to Tex? Unreal.

  167. Will says:

    yay cano! /sarcasm

  168. E-ROC says:

    That’s just terrible AB by Cano

  169. Souter Fell says:

    now theyre gonna bitch about tex’s ball 4, is this espn?

  170. rockdog says:

    Arod did not get the message that the game was over after AP gave up 3 runs.

  171. Reggie C. says:

    C’mon Cano…. you can’t give away at-bats like that.

  172. Jake H says:

    I want Long to get in Robbies face. He has been terrible.

  173. southernyankeefan says:

    In the last game there was a pitch that Fox’s little pitch tracker showed as much more of a strike than that and they would not admit it. Joe and Tim kept saying and that was a ball. I hate these fuckers.

    • adeel says:

      I don’t understand why mlb just doesn’t have a team comprising of 1 phllies broadcaster, 1 yankees broadcaster, and one neutral active baseball guy (ozzie Guillen etc..)

  174. Ace III says:

    Clutch Rod is back

  175. Bob Stone says:

    Okay ARod. Let’s see some offense from the rest of the Yanks.

  176. MAMO says:

    typical cano at bat…

  177. Drew says:

    It took them longer to huddle in the middle of the field to decide what they were going to do than it took them to actually review the play.

  178. Zack says:

    PATHETIC OFFENSE! No way they can come back! I can’t watch this game anymore!

    /Brazilian Yankee & Co.

  179. The Artist says:

    Alex hit that ball like he’s half-man, half-horse.

  180. Ghost of Scott Brosius says:

    Then we let him go right back to the dugout. At least hit the ball hard, take pitches, SOMETHING. Our lineup is still so out of it. It’s not the getting out, it’s the type of outs.

  181. Stadium Garlic Fries says:

    Mr.Seling, did u see that?

  182. Mike Pop says:

    We want Hairston!


  183. Tank the Frank says:

    …and then Jorge and Robbie make weak outs on four pitches. Brilliant.

  184. JMK aka The Overshare says:

    If we were to pick one of these two to really break out of the slump, who would you want more: Damon or Cano?

  185. Girardi out to the mound says:

    Do you guys think that Cano’s struggles in the postseason is similar to his struggles with RISP? Is he a poor hitter when he is under pressure or is this all just a coincidence that will even out over time?

  186. slappy white says:

    I seriously wanted to punch McCarver in the nuts when he whined about ball 4 to Tex AFTER the homer

  187. baka nakamura says:

    another quick inning from andy would be stellar.

  188. Riddering says:

    I love me some shirtless Robert Downey Jr.

  189. dkidd says:

    when instant replay gets expanded, can we please have a guy sitting in the video booth with a radio who can relay the correct call within seconds instead of the entire umpire crew walking off the field?

  190. Quikksand says:


  191. Pasqua says:

    Besides getting back in the game, the mainstream media can now put the whole fucking A-Rod Chokes on the Big Stage storyline to bed, for good.

  192. The Three Amigos says:

    I just want to say I have never seen Posada play so lethargic and not into the game in my life. He has seen 3 pitches tonight, has swung 3 times and has two of the weakest grounders ever.

  193. Salty Buggah says:

    Ah damn. Cmon A-Rod!

    Get a DP Andy

  194. Reggie C. says:

    Damnit. Rodriguez is having some troubles at 3B.

  195. JMK aka The Overshare says:

    Alex’s defense has been really suspect lately.

  196. JoeFromBayRidge says:

    Hopefully this isn’t ridiculous but doesn’t it seem like Posada is catching most of the pitches awkwardly?

  197. southernyankeefan says:

    Fuck Alex just cuz you hit a homer doen’t mean you can do that shit.

  198. Ghost of Scott Brosius says:

    Arods defense = what the fuck

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

    you can duck errors?

  200. Jake H says:

    That should be A-ROd’s 3rd error in the last 2 games.

  201. swisher's fauxhawk says:

    Just because you’re part centaur doesn’t mean you have to throw like one, Alex.

  202. Drew says:

    A-rod? More like Boo-rod!


  203. MAMO says:

    Too many mistakes…

  204. whozat says:

    If I didn’t know ARod was better than this on D, it wouldn’t bug me so much.

  205. Dave G says:

    Here comes the double play.

  206. MAMO says:

    Uh, stop pitching Ruiz like he’s Howard.

  207. Jake H says:

    Why is Andy pitching Ruiz like he is the greatest hitter of all time. Go after him.

    • adeel says:

      he is being careful. All he has to do is get through this inning… the Yankee offense is about to wake up!

  208. Ace III says:

    Does anybody else hate the in game interviews?

  209. JobaWockeeZ says:

    WTF Jorge? No DP? Where’s Cervelli?

  210. JMK aka The Overshare says:

    Well, at least we got someone out this time on the bunt.

  211. claybeez says:

    Can anyone hit Tex square in the mitt? Tired of these crap throws.

  212. Doug says:

    Phew, that offensive terror, Cole Hamels, is off the basepaths.

  213. Riddering says:

    Dear media covering this game on twitter,

    Your centaur jokes are no longer fresh or hilarious. Please stop. You’re only embarrassing yourselves.

    • Salty Buggah says:

      Yea, their old. I just wanna see more of A-Rod galloping around the bases. Just needs to keep putting a lot of horsepower into his swing.

  214. Ghost of Scott Brosius says:

    Even before the home run, I’m alot less concerned about Arod then I am about Damon, Cano, Posada, Swisher

  215. dkidd says:

    according to pitch selection, ruiz is the second greatest hitter of all time

    nick punto is the greatest

  216. Stadium Garlic Fries says:

    why our pitchers r not throwing strikes to Rollins, he has .250 avg and .300 obp this year
