AJ Burnett is the man.
Go to Mo? Or leave AJ in? He’s still dealing.
AJ starts the inning. Get Marte and Mo ready to come in at a moment’s notice.
AJ for the 8th?
I’m being irrational though, just want him to get that 10th K.
I’d at least go batter to batter with him. Rollins and Victorino do not scare me at all.
Now, if one of them reaches, go to Mo.
Don’t forget Marte for the lefties.
na cause molina has an at- bat coming
That’s my boy !
It reminds me of my ALCS.
I want the Swisher to pie AJ after this win is over.
What an outing.
Ok….does AJ stay in? Or is Joe going to Mo for 6 outs?
With the way AJ is dealing, I’d give him a shot.
K-Rob on a short leash with Mo warming?
If we’re seeing a reliever, it’ll be Mo.
Were the fans chanting AJ’s name?
while being interviewed by ken rosenthal, aj will thrust a pie into his own face
i just laughed out loud at this one, glorious
As did I.
Watch it, game’s not over just yet.
“Hey Ken, remember that article you wrote in the beginning of the season? I do.”
I like the fact that ARod, Jay-Z, and Ken Rosenthal are all in attendance tonight.
Hah. Alicia Keys drops a piano on Kenny and sets it on fire. I can dream, can’t I?
AJ is a headcase
He pitches horrible, except for those times when he pitches well.
I smell of urine and cheese whiz.
Carl Brutananadilewski once hit me in the head with a battery
Insurance runs please.
Send him back out to start the 8th.
Time to stretch this lead out and get into their pen
I would say give him a shot, but with a VERY short leash. We all saw what happened in LA, I don’t want that happening again.
Who for the eighth? Is Hughsie still our man? I would be okay with it. I’d also be okay with AJ. Also, can’t go wrong with MO.
I love our boys, really do, but I don’t want to see anyone but A.J. or Mo.
Gotta go to Mo for 2.
Mo. Maybe bring out AJ. I’m torn on this one.
The Phils got the good Burnett. The type of Burnett who looks like Nolan Ryan/Tom Sever. Yeah when he’s on, he’s THAT good.
Me: I want to hug A.J. so hard right now.
Friend: I suspect you’d go lower.
I love you, Riddering.
I messed up this same question on the last thread.
Why do you guys think that Buck and McCarver are so ho hum over AJ’s start tonight. He is dealin like Lee did last night.
cuz they are tools.
That’s who they are. Don’t give the Yankees credit when they can.
Pedro = Brett Favre
AJ = Aaron Rogers
They’re just overhyping the more interesting storyline.
ZOMG SPEAKING OF BRETFARR DID YOU HEAR HE’S PLAYING THE PACKERS THIS SUNDAY LEMME TELL YOU ALL ABOUT IT
I’m eating cheese and drinking Milwaukee’s Best. You were saying?
There’s no reason to pay any mind to the analysis/fawning of those two. It’s a taxing, pointless endeavor.
He is dealing. I’d say Lee was a touch better. A tiny, tiny touch. I give Lee the edge because he threw a CG. Still, AJ has been lights-out.
They no like Yankees.
Honestly, I don’t think the discrepancy tonight is terrible. There’s a noticeable difference in the type of words and what they’re saying about AJ’s performance tonight, but at least they’re giving him some credit.
In the end, I think we all know Buck and McCarver let their bias show one way or another. It’s unprofessional and unbecoming of announcers, but I guess there’s nothing we can do about it.
i stick with burnett. dude’s on fire.
AJ! Dirty little motherfucker!
Pregame guys taking pics of Alicia Keys’s sweet ass! hilarious
Sleeping Giant Tex followed none other by Matsui…kinda fitting.
Okay, this Hero thing is terrible.
Getting the leadoff man on would be a refreshing change
And FOX has successfully killed 7 epileptics.
That was the worst advertising attempt I’ve ever seen.
That may have been the stupidest promo for anything, ever.
That was a stupid thing by fox
It is funny the guys Buck and McCarver drool over. They have barely mentioned that AJ has been dominant tonight. Remember them riding Saunders in the ALCS?
I say let AJ start the 8th but keep him on a short leesh. If he lets a batter on base, bring in Mo
DJ Hero highlight = probably the worst plug for a company ever. They didn’t show a home run, a K, or anything. Terrible.
WHy not pinch hit Hinske?
Are the Yankees going to take out Burnett????
No, I don’t think so!!!!! But I’m not sure!!!!! What do you think????
I hope they do. lol.
I hope so 2 lmfao kthxbai
No reason to be a dick. He’s been a pretty solid, respectful commentator.
He has been, and I’ve engaged him in dialogue.
Am I not allowed to fuck with him a little, though? I fuck with everyone.
The zone for Hairston is huge right now
why isnt Hinske up here?
We have the lead, we may need Grit to pr and don;t want Hinske to go out to RF.
I’ll shut up now.
guessing girardi wants to keep hairston’s “defense” in the game. don’t know why you don’t pinch hit hinske then use gardner in the top of the eigth
Save your bullets. This may go extras.
… or not.
nevermind, same outcome
AJ had really earned some respect in my eyes tonight. Didn’t think
he was a gamer giving up the lead last time out. I’m
hoping we can close it out for him (and my sanity).
I really think that Joe Buck and Tim McCarver all circle jerk in the opponents lockerroom after every game.
It’s no secret.
Mo for 6 again? I think I’d AJ with Mo ready whenever there’s trouble
I probably start the inning with AJ, but early trouble go to Mo, or you could start the inning with Mo.
Am I the only one who doesnt want to see AJ in the 8th?
At the very least, only let him go after Ruiz.
oh joe, you’re full of so many interesting little gems about baseball history.
Hairston! Girardi’s a genius!
Hey look, it’s Jeeerrry!
There we go.
Bye Bye Pedro
Hey, not bad by Hairston.
Jerry, please return to your regularly scheduled bench warming and sun flower devouring. …..ERRRRRRR……
GREATEST MOVE EVER!!!! GIRARDI IS A GENIUS!!!
Let’s get it Melk. Do your fuckin thang meng.
Pinch run? YES!
Bring in Gardy to run + defensive upgrade.
OMG Girardi’s a Genius
Oh god no.
Why it’s the 7th, he’s really fast and a good defender?
apparently i had … an overreaction to previous base stealing attempts. good thing Melky put in some work right there and spared us the drama of the inevitable base steal attempt.
True, wasn’t thinking about that aspect, but it all worked out
Looks like it worked brilliantly. Hairston would be standing on second right now.
Hairston’s had good at bats, he can play Saturday as well
Gardner – Lewt’s see a SUCCESSFUL steal for a change
Why Gardner here? Why not save him to PR for someone who’s…slow?
Charlie Manuel leaving Pedro out when he’s over his limit and tiring?
Gardner better get his ass on to second base.
Can he go 0-4 as the “Dave Roberts” guy this postseason? Stay tuned.
Gardner needs to run on this next pitch. Don’t let melky bunt!
Why Gardner? Now if they PH for Posada you really don’t have a catcher. Unless they put in Swish.
It’s time for Jorge to jack one.
If Molina gets up right now, I’ll be angry.
Those are our guys! Came up through OUR minor leagues!
that’s hot stuff!
We actually strung together 2 hits!!!!!!!!!!!!!! omg!!!!!!!
They’re awake and alive!
nice! Now pinch hit for Molina!
No bunt. Make Gardy steal first at least.
See! Melky can hit!!!!!
Girardi pushing all the RIGHT moves now. WOAH!
Hairston, Gardner, and Melky, all contributing.
Suck it, Phillies.
there u go guys..there u go..
Jorge. Jorge Jorge Jorge.
YANKEES WITH TEH SMALL BALL!
Bottom of the order just happened.
Here comes the offense.
Manuel pulling a Grady Little?
Good job Melky.
That’s my boy!!!!!!
/Double Smiley face’d
YOU’RE MY BOY, BLUE!
Fuck you and suck this.
Sincerely, Yankees nation
Back to back hits !!
We need a Hip Hip
Manuel has to take Pedro out. WTF.
Oh ok, I thought he was going senile.
Yeah, I thought he was going to let Pedro face Posada for a second there. Yikes.
girardi is a genius (once more)
we need jorgie juiced one here..
Nice call on the hit and run. I’ve got to give it to Melky, he’s done pretty well recently and I railed on him for not being there offensively.
Buh bye Pedro. Now be a good boy and bring Daddy his drink and his newspaper.
I said get me a beer boy….damn
I always thought Manuel sounded like Grady Little…thinks like him too.
if we get 2or 3 do you still go with Mo for 2 innings ?
you’ll regret that smile
Pedro is such a friggin’ tool.
lol, Pedro is totally milking it here.
somethings never change..Pedro implosion at exactly 100 pitches..
Haha, he smiled!
Nice game though by Pedro. Hats off to him.
Manuel consults book on Jorge-Pedro, doesn’t want the bases loaded on a HBP.
Also? I’d like both Gardner and Melky to come around and score here at least.
ha pedro gets a kick out of the boo birds
Hah… Gotta love pedro. He pitched great and is a character. Baseball needs that.
He also assaults overweight old men and hits Yankee batters.
Gotta hate him.
ok for your first point, even a true yankee fan has to say that zimmer pretty much started that… even zimmer says so
Zimmer runs about as quick as Jose Molina in crutches. Pedro could have avoided tossing him to the ground.
He has a very prissy walk.
he is a bit of a fancy boy
Lets go Afflac runs here.
No one I love to hate more than Pedro. Hopefully the Post depicts him with a tail and horns tomorrow in honor of Halloween.
aww, c’mon… he’s a great villian. i love em.
We’re a better villain.
He’s a great heel, then.
Some of my favorite all time Yankee memories involve him on the mound, and if we win tonight I will add this game to my collection.
I dunno, Pedro pitched really well. I don’t think the Yankees were really his daddy tonight
lol, you gotta love that smile by pedro, give respects for a great performance by the future HOF’er
Bruney batter to batter than “our only reliable bullpen pitcher besides Mo” Marte, right?
The only way I want to see Bruney in the 8th is if the Yankees put up an 11-spot here.
Are you sure Bruney wasn’t a typo from u? he is not even allowed in fair territory..forget mound
Is it weird that I dont really mind Pedro?
Even that grin doesnt bother me. It’s like as soon as he left the Sox, I could start to appreciate what a great personality he is (and, obviously, how great a pitcher).
I like Pedro. He’s fiery, a great pitcher and a pretty humble guy.
Pedro taking forever to walk off the mound. He really does relish these moments. You’ve got to hand it to him, he did pitch well.
P.S. get fucked Pedro
He pitched great, nobody thought he could still do what he did tonight.
They’re bringing in Park??
Say what you want about him, but you may have just watch the final outing of a career by one of the greatest pitchers who ever lived.
Better outing, but worse ending than Clemens’.
As in, Clemens’ last pitch was a swinging strike three.
He may have just earned himself a fairly nice contract for next year with his performance so far this postseason
I would think so, but he had so much trouble getting a deal this year.
People talk about how good Koufax was in his prime, but Pedro was *much* better.
No, Pedro’s the type of egomaniac (like other great sports legends) who will stick around for another two years, minimum.
4 runs (yeah, I said it), in 6 innings against the Yanks in the Bronx in the WS? We’ll see him again next year.
This world does not need a Wanda Sykes show.
I don’t think the world needs a Wanda Sykes anything.
Wanda Sykes’s HBO special was actually quite funny.
Pedro = ASSHOLE
Pedro will always be a douche nozzle…
Come on, Jorge
Chad Ho has a beard? Philly must really be growing on him.
Chan Ho Roadkill
Park looks like the Asian version of Red Sox Johnny Damon
Pedro did pitch well. All in all, a quality start.
Now the Yanks need to chip away at this bullpen. Let’s keep the bats talking boys!
Why no Madson here?
Maybe he’s in relief to close? Maybe he can only pitch teh eight?!1 Maybe Manuel doesn’t want to change roles? Maybe Manuel really trusts Park?
Probably some combination of those.
Weird. I would actually take a patented Posada DP here for a run.
but. thats even better!!
Comon Jorge, a flyball. It’s all we need.
Or a linedrive rbi single. That’s good too.
Jorge, why are you turning from that pitch?
time to bus dis game open and tell ‘em bring it back
/Hip Hop song you dont know if you dont go to da club still’d
HIP HIP JORGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Holy shit, we have hitters!
I guess it was all a part of his plan. My bad, Jorge.
see ..real catchers can hit like that
insurance runs are the best runs.
AJ is the man!!!!
Puuulease, you think Po is afraid of Park?
Any one want to give odds on a bunt here?
CHP’s beard is terrible…it looks like a bad disguise.
All he needs are some Buddy Holly glasses.
Please do not bunt. Please.
So where’s the haters and trolls now?
As said before they do this every game. It’s not a shock if they suck int he beginning and go out with a bang.
Happ should of been brought in to make Posada bat righty but what can you do. Looks like the Yanks are waking up. Great.
Only a matter of time, my friend.
Why is JETER bunting!?!?
Why are you bunting Derek?
Don’t bunt here Jeter..swing away..
Sigh. Jeter’s not really trying to bunt is he?
Like a good backup catcher, Jorge Posada is there for you!!
Jeter. Stop bunting, you’re Derek fucking Jeter.
Jeter cannot be taking his bat out for Johnny’s.
our hottest hitter should not be bunting!!!
what did Jeter achieve by giving up 2 free strikes?
You mean three?
make that 3 free strikes.
I hate when Jeter goes up looking to bunt. I know he’s prone to hitting into DPs, but he still has a good bat in his hands. Let him swing away.
I don’t understand why Jeter tries to do this. Does he know who’s batting directly behind him?
What are you fucking doing?
Wow. that’s ridiculous.
What the shit, Jeter.
Are you fucking kidding me, Derek? What a fucking awful decision.
Wow, thank you Jeter.
What is he doing? Jeter is out of his fucking mind.
What was that Jeter?
My god, what was Jeter thinking?
why dont you just give him an out jeter?
WHAT THE FUCK WAS THAT?????????
Stupid on every level
You’ve got to be kidding me.
stupidest play ever
What in the world was he doing???
wow..Epic meltdown by captain..
Absolutely awful. Swing the fucking bat.
WTF ? Jeter…Really ?
I’m confused right now
nice call tim.
really fing dumb worst part about his game, he thinks its good to bunt
That was fucking terrible.
That was inexplicable on every level.
wtf was that what an awful awful play
Everything good in that inning now has a shit stain on it. That was a terrible decision.
I love Derek Jeter, but I will slap the shit out of him if I see him for that.
that gives me a hilarious mental picture
Good job Jeter….
WHAT THE FACK ARE YOU DOING?????????????????????
I don;t think Joe ordered that bunt. Maybe on the first strike, I doubt he left it on though.
wow. just….wow. jeter, wtf.
Hey guys, no DP at least.
Bunting in general: bad play.
Bunting on Chan Ho Park whose only batter faced ripped a single up the middle.
bunting with two strikes any time ever: WORST. PLAY. EVER.
Heads down play by Jeter.
Wow. Totally dumb move by one of the smartest guys ever to play the game.
Maybe the dumbest play I’ve ever seen Jeter make in 13 years.
Jeter just wanted to piss off all of RAB and he succeeded.
who is that, and what have they done with jeter
McCarver’s right (gulp)- bad idea to bunt especially with 2 strikes
(temperature in hell dives 10 degrees – no sign of frost yet)
I cannot believe that Jeter would bunt there. Talk about a major Thank You in Philly land.
WUT THE HELL JETER?!
Dammit, how do you not get a bunt down?
Tim McCarver says it all…
Girardi overmanaging again…
Holy shit jump to conclusions much?
This was on Jeter.
I can’t believe I just saw Jeter strike out on three bunting attempts. I think the only other Yankee to do that this season was Joba.
jeter i love you but that was fucking retarded, its Chan Ho Park for crying out loud
I dont even know what to say….that was awful on so many levels.
Who called that brillinat move? Jeter or Girardi? Jeter is too smart to do that which leaves us with only one choice.
No way Girardi has him bunting with two strikes. He may have called Jeter to do it initially, but even that is questionable.
that was a horrible wasted AB
Figures. Skip the good innings, talk about the bad.
So…how were Matsui’s 3 bad AB’s?
I think I’ve said it twice already….
That dancing chick is scary ugly….
and I hate the Blackberry commercials.
I hate that dancing Blackberry commercial even more when our HoF leadoff hitter K’s bunting with 2 on and no one out. Just saying…
i love mcarvers moan when jeter bunted with two strikes.
This AB by Jeter was worse than him hitting in DP while swinging..
Unbelievable – I just don’t believe I saw that!!!
I’d love to hear anyone defend the bunt there.
0 outs. 1 n 2 with a team on the ropes with maybe your best hitter up.
You got to be kidding.
Lanny, come on. No one here defends ANY bunts, let alone one with two strikes from the Capn.
yes! look at what the phillies have done! look! look!
Maybe Jeter is was not comfortable swinging there.
Hey, not a first pitch pop out. Thats progress.
Did Eyre eat the buffet table?
Bunting is bad. Bunting against a guy who just gave up a rocket is worse. Bunting with 2 strikes against that same guy when you are Derek fuckin Jeter is ATROCIOUS!
You just cant predict baseball
BULLSHIT THAT WAS TRAPPED
BAD CALL! Yanks get not break! Umpires stink!
That ball bounced!! Come the fuck on.
I dont know what to say…
Jeter’s attempted bunt makes that look a hundred times worse.
The Phillies are a damn cheating team…
But hey MLB dont get instant replay or anything.
WOW. Inning over compared to bases load 1 out. That is a HUGE freaking missed call.
Should of More runs, oh well. Mo Time.
How do you miss that?????????????????
ANOTHER BLOWN CALL BY THE UMPIRES, HOW SHOCKING
Well umps, way to screw that one up. Instead of bases loaded and one out, it’s a b.s. double play.
Yanks might be winning, but the Phillies are still getting the lucky calls.
Thanks umps. YOU SUCK ASS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Return of the Horrible Umpiring, now playing at a stadium near you.
bad call there. ball short hopped it.
That is horseshit. I have to say that this postseason has convinced me fully to use instant replay. These guys suck.
Motherfucking Umpires. Atleast ask for help you fucking retard. Ugh.
not the umps fault, see thats why we should have fucking replay
I’m fucking tired of this shit. Fuck umpires. It’s the fucking World Series. Fuck umps and fuck Selig.
Holy fucking shit!!! I am done with this umpiring. Institute REPLAY for everything! Balls, strikes, pop-flys. I don’t give a fuck. These old bastards are incompetent motherfcukers!!!!
That is a HUGE fucken swing… i hope its not a game changer.
that should be bases loaded, 1 out
This is getting ridiculous with Jeter. Cashman HAS to get in his ear about giving himself up in some of his most crucial AB’s.
Also: instant replay. If it’s not in place next year in a VERY WIDE array of applications, I will personally drive to Milwaukee and punch Bud in the eye.
umpires should not exist any more.
Wait, so Ryan Howard knows he didn’t catch the ball so he throws to second, but the umpire is sure he did catch it and calls a double play. Un-fucking-real.
Why would Howard throw to second if he’d caught before touching the ground? Howard’s play was just the confirmation that the ball bounced…what a fucking joke.
