Settle down, Andy. Hold it there.
Andy has nothing working tonight so far. Ugh.
Knicks have forced overtime!!!! Oh wait wrong blog….
No shit this isn’t Knickerblogger.
But seriously, I may check the game out on League Pass if this game continues the way it is continuing.
It doesnt matter how any of our pitchers do… we cant get ANYTHING going offensively
Why can’t the Yankees HIT?
I thought that was gone…
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!!!!
Per PeteAbe: Yankees now 14 of 72 (.194) in Series with 24 K, 1-9 with RISP, 4 runs in 20 innings.
Looking like the 2001 WS so far.
Yeah. It’s been a tough 20 innings. That’s a real indicative sample of how good they are, especially when 9 of them were against Cliff Lee.
Game is far from over.
Just settle down AP.
this is getting really frustrating. hope andy gets it together and ends this inning quickly.
Very discouraging. Let’s get going Yanks.
Mike calling out the commenters on Twitter. I like it. Relax people, this game is nowhere near over yet.
Sorry ass offense
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”
Sorry ass, offense.
Sorry, ass offense.
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.
Because Ace has done this in all his previous postseasons…
Because Ace has had previous postseasons?
That was my point.
I meant to say it wouldn’t be the ’09 Yankees if Ace didn’t get a “vulture” win in the postseason.
He did it all season. He also hasn’t pitched at all in the last month, so I doubt this will happen.
Tryna be positive here.
No you’re right man, good call. Keep the faith.
Bump in the road.
I am simply not worried yet.
Have you been watching these games? This team looks lost.
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.
If the Yanks go down 3 games to one, then call me. Then you can hear me worried.
Howard has struck out 6 straight at bats and they’re talking about what Halloween costumes he likes.
Odd, when A-Rod has a bad two game, they talk about how he must be pressing and falling apart.
I hope the Knicks can inspire the Yanks tonight.
no watch Andy quietly put away everyone.
The A.J. Effect?
The main difference between Howard and A-Rod right now is that I think Howard might go homicidal soon.
Yanks offense is due to explode on Hamels.
I keep thinking this, but they look awful. Why?
Because of progression to the mean
Hope you’re right….I think we need a larger sample before we could be “confident” in that progression.
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?
They weren’t invited to any nice parties.
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.
I’m going to be sick. We are so screwed….this offense is just pathetic and embarassing, to say the least. I hate this.
Joker! I get it!
Plenty of game left. Our offense will wake up.
I hope you’re right because it’s making me insane.
Come on bats, Hamels is NOT that good. WAKE UP!
Hey fans! Call or text your friends. We could be witnessing history – a woman just touched my arm. Hamels also has a no-hitter.
It would be nice if we could at least get into their bullpen.
At this rate, they’ll get Hamels out of the game some time in the 11th inning.
If that means we tie it up at some point, I’ll take it.
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!
even he lost confidence in our batshas played in the postseason before, and knows that you’re often facing good pitching.
Fixed that for you.
No, that means Andy feels that he’s failed his team if he’s given up 3+ runs.
Andy needed this fast inning..
All right. Nice fast inning. Let’s DO THIS!!
Haha Melky with the pump fake.
nice fake throw by Melky..fuck those fans.
Funny thing is, I guarantee you those fans now love Melky Cabrera.
Okay. Stabilized. Good. Now the middle of the order.
Statement inning, anyone?
ok good 10 pitch inning nice turnaround Andy, now lets score
watching the yankees at bats this series keeps reminding me of this
I can just picture Damon saying “Too Good.”
LET’S GO YANKEES!
Nice, short inning from Andy.
that was sweet. now hit some balls please.
I do agree with other comments – Hamels isn’t dazzling anyone right now. He’s begging to get hit.
That quick inning helped get Andy’s pitch count down to a reasonable 60 through 3.
But I thought he was DFA’d after the 2nd?
OK. Good job by Andy. More pitching like that and maybe he can give the team 6.
Ok… 123 inning… time to get some of these runs back… lets go … YANKS!!!
We are not out of this game yet. Even if it gets to the 9th inning remember…their closer is Brad Lidge
I just hope its 3 runs or less so he even comes in.
I’m disappointed by some of you in here. Its 3 fuckin runs!
seriously, haven’t we watched this team win 110 games
my bad..i realized as soon as I typed but I ignored to correct thinking people will get the message
No, that one doesn’t count because the offense only scored 3 runs.
They have to score 10+ for it to be considered a REAL win.
we need TSJC to call people out
I blame this 3-run deficit on him.
Yeah, where is he? Damn his social life, he should be here rallying the troops!
Melky is silly.
That DJ Hero game looks like the suck.
nice bounceback inning for andy
i believe we will score more than 3 runs tonight
confidence level = shaken not stirred
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.
Nice 2 pitch at bat Donny Jamon.
It’s a huge handicap having your #2 hitter and LFer be completely useless.
Dude, can Andy get that fucking strike called off the plate on the outside?
NOT what I had in mind, Johnny. How are we supposed to “cowboy up” when you keep doing that?
Be on the mark, Tex.
Now a changeup and Tex will Whiff
Time to start swinging!
Johnny Damon continues to divide by zero.
There you go Tex. Good AB.
That was a BIG non-call. Finally.
Looked like Tex got away with that one.
I’ll take it.
Yeah, lucked out a bit.
Cmon A-Rod, no DP. Go back to beast mode again PLEASE!
This is how it starts.
A-Rod. Be a star.
Ok! Let’s get something going here. Cmon A-Rod. Shut everybody up.
Hit it out and tell them to STFU.
cmon a-rod. shake em up out there.
Alex. … now would be a good time to snap out of it.
Wow i was waiting for him to punch out mark. would not have been surprised with our luck.
Here we go Alex.
Come on Arod lift one out of here
This is how we do it.
There you go hoss! Get some!
Is that now gone?
Good hit Arod.
TAKE THAT YOU HATERS.
TAKE IT AND SUCK IT.
So close! But I love it.
Thank you Al.
Alright! One single away from making this a 1 run game.
That’s a start.
Nice job A-Rod!!!
Cmon with the RISP hit someone!
yea baby! here we go! i thought that ball was hit terribly
That’s a home run!
Should be a home run!
Damn i thought that might go…but i’ll take it.
hit the camera! gone?!!
HOLY SHIT that should have been a home run!
That’s a HR!
That’s a HOMERUN!!!
thats a homerun!
does the caemra count as a homerun?
That’s a fucking home run.
3-2…thats a homer!
HR, check it!
thats a HR!!!
that should be a HR!!!
Home run! Replay it!
ITS AN A-BOMB!!!
what dumbass put the camera hanging OVER the wall? thats HR!
Yankee’s offensive choke >>>>>>>>>>> Jean Van de Velde 1999 Open Champion choke
HOME FREAKING RUN!!!!
A-Rod! Beast mode! That’s a HR!
they better fucking check this
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.
It’s time for Melky RF, Gardner CF, Hairston LF. Damon and Swisher are automatic outs, and we might as well get better defense.
Replay that shit, yo.
We NEED this replay call. Please do the right thing umps!!!!!!
3-2 ladies and gents. New ballgame.
That’s a HR
Don’t they have to watch the replay? It’s a HR.
THAT WAS GONE.
I swear if they fucking say it wasn’t I’m going to kill everyone I know.
Shouldn’t we be able to get the view from that camera?
CALL IT BLUE…!!!
Thats a homer
can we see the footage taken from that camera?
that would be cool shot
“Was it going down when it hit the camera??”
McCarver … are you fucking retarded?
You know the answer to that.
that is a fucking HR
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
It would have left he park if the camera wasn’t there
sweet HR and Hamels has to wait it out.
Joe Buck really doesn’t want this to be a HR
don’t give me that ‘inconclusive’ cop out, please MO
Buck didn’t even act like the ball was hit and it’s gonna end up a homer
Come on Blue, get something right
they better reverse that shit.
WAIT- the replay is going to take too long!
/anti-instant replay fans
Why do all of the umps need to go inside? This is cracking me up in a way.
A-Rod shits on the right field camera.
The umps better not FUCKING blow this!!
Come on umps…
ha! they’ll look at it on… THIS monitor.
seriously thats what they have to look at replay on???? that is weak as shit.
The Phillies fans think the umps went inside because they all got upset.
McCarver..this is not football..we are not checking the plane of the camera …if it hit the camera..it is HR
I think we might get screwed on this.
A-Rod!!!!!!!!!!!! Clutch mothafucker!
let’s go ny!
yeah baby, welcome to the world series arod
FUCK YOU JOE BUCK!
AROD IS A GODDD!!!!!!!
A (very delayed) A-BOMB!!!
Right call. THis needs to spark the O
I hereby announce my love of all things instant replay!
fox cameras FTL
Good job, blue…for a change
What is Manuel going to argue? Does he think his eyes are better than replay?
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
i really thought it was out as soon as he hit it though it didn’t go as far as i anticipated.
Hell yeah instant replay makes the game better. HELL YEAH.
Now can the media focus on Howard’s Ks since Alex is productive?
Omg this game isn’t ova!
A-ROD!! HOMERUN!!A-ROD!! HOMERUN!!A-ROD!! GET SOME!!!!
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!
Alex says lets party like its the ALCS!
LMAO at that comment
Now, why does Manuel go out there? What, are they gonna go look again?
This is why we need instant replay in baseball.
Way to give Hamels a breather, Jorge.
tied with Bernie?
Yeah Bern Dog had 6 in ’96, I believe.
Posada = not even trying?
Do we all feel better now, guys?
But the game was slowed down11111111111
WAH WAH WAH!!!!
They have his timing!!! He is going to get crushed the 3rd time through!!!
good one Robbie..good one!
Robby will break out, no worries
So now they’re going back and replaying the pitch to Tex? Unreal.
do the fox execs even realize how anti-ny they are?
according to everybody else, they love the Yankees.
Fox sports is anti-NY.
Fox News apparently when talking about the WS wants the Yanks to win.
Yah, can we see Werth’s AB, where that pitch was called a ball twice?
yay cano! /sarcasm
That’s just terrible AB by Cano
now theyre gonna bitch about tex’s ball 4, is this espn?
Arod did not get the message that the game was over after AP gave up 3 runs.
C’mon Cano…. you can’t give away at-bats like that.
I want Long to get in Robbies face. He has been terrible.
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.
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..)
Clutch Rod is back
Okay ARod. Let’s see some offense from the rest of the Yanks.
typical cano at bat…
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.
Yeah, but that will be held up as an example of why replay will make the games interminable.
PATHETIC OFFENSE! No way they can come back! I can’t watch this game anymore!
/Brazilian Yankee & Co.
Alex hit that ball like he’s half-man, half-horse.
Half-man, half-horse, all A-Rod!
Half man, half bear, half pig
Public school FTL?
No stupid, he’s half man, half bearpig.
Wtf was that centaur bullshit about?
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.
Mr.Seling, did u see that?
We want Hairston!
…and then Jorge and Robbie make weak outs on four pitches. Brilliant.
If we were to pick one of these two to really break out of the slump, who would you want more: Damon or Cano?
Damon. He’s been worse.
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?
I’m going with bad luck.
it almost looks like he’s trying to be too cool, taking pitches and blowing bubbles and shit
You think his image is getting in the way of his success?
I seriously wanted to punch McCarver in the nuts when he whined about ball 4 to Tex AFTER the homer
another quick inning from andy would be stellar.
I love me some shirtless Robert Downey Jr.
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?
CRUSH THE PHILLIES!
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.
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.
Put Cervelli in!
I dont want cervilli, I want posadas head in the game.
At least he’s playing good D, as shown on that great play on Hamel’s bunt.
Ah damn. Cmon A-Rod!
Get a DP Andy
Damnit. Rodriguez is having some troubles at 3B.
Not really. He’s been great this postseason except for 2 plays.
Alex’s defense has been really suspect lately.
Hopefully this isn’t ridiculous but doesn’t it seem like Posada is catching most of the pitches awkwardly?
You mean more so than usual?
Fuck Alex just cuz you hit a homer doen’t mean you can do that shit.
Oh yeah he’s so garbage. Where the fuck is Cody Ransom.
I heard he can jump high. Can they measure that on UZR?
Arods defense = what the fuck
you can duck errors?
That should be A-ROd’s 3rd error in the last 2 games.
Just because you’re part centaur doesn’t mean you have to throw like one, Alex.
A centaur wouldn’t be able to get low enough to field it. Give the man some credit.
A-rod? More like Boo-rod!
Throw in a little sad trombone for good measure.
Too many mistakes…
If I didn’t know ARod was better than this on D, it wouldn’t bug me so much.
Here comes the double play.
Uh, stop pitching Ruiz like he’s Howard.
Why is Andy pitching Ruiz like he is the greatest hitter of all time. Go after him.
he is being careful. All he has to do is get through this inning… the Yankee offense is about to wake up!
Does anybody else hate the in game interviews?
Oh i hate it… drives me nuts
I do. That’s like some Spring Training type shit.
I don’t mind it, maybe if they asked more intelligent questions…
Or if they didn’t show only the manager’s face…
WTF Jorge? No DP? Where’s Cervelli?
Well, at least we got someone out this time on the bunt.
Can anyone hit Tex square in the mitt? Tired of these crap throws.
whoever’s at 1st
Phew, that offensive terror, Cole Hamels, is off the basepaths.
Dear media covering this game on twitter,
Your centaur jokes are no longer fresh or hilarious. Please stop. You’re only embarrassing yourselves.
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.
Even before the home run, I’m alot less concerned about Arod then I am about Damon, Cano, Posada, Swisher
Brutal Gang of 4
according to pitch selection, ruiz is the second greatest hitter of all time
nick punto is the greatest
why our pitchers r not throwing strikes to Rollins, he has .250 avg and .300 obp this year
