World Series Game Two Spillover Thread IV

Categories : Game Threads, Playoffs


  1. JobaWockeeZ says:

    AJ Burnett is the man.

  2. Klemy says:


  3. Vinny the Bull says:

    Go to Mo? Or leave AJ in? He’s still dealing.

  4. JMK aka The Overshare says:

    AJ for the 8th?

  5. Drew says:

    AJ… HOLLA!!

  6. Mike Pop says:

    That’s my boy !

  7. I want the Swisher to pie AJ after this win is over.

  8. Jim says:

    What an outing.

  9. Jay says:

    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.

  10. Will says:

    K-Rob on a short leash with Mo warming?

  11. Jake H says:

    Were the fans chanting AJ’s name?

  12. dkidd says:

    while being interviewed by ken rosenthal, aj will thrust a pie into his own face

  13. ansky says:

    AJ is a headcase


  14. AJ says:

    Insurance runs please.

  15. NYTraveller says:

    Send him back out to start the 8th.

    Time to stretch this lead out and get into their pen

  16. Derby says:

    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.

  17. Drew says:

    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.

  18. Ivan says:

    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.

  19. Riddering says:

    Me: I want to hug A.J. so hard right now.
    Friend: I suspect you’d go lower.

  20. Phanatic Philly says:

    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.

    • baka nakamura says:

      cuz they are tools.

    • JobaWockeeZ says:

      That’s who they are. Don’t give the Yankees credit when they can.

    • Will says:

      Pedro = Brett Favre
      AJ = Aaron Rogers

      They’re just overhyping the more interesting storyline.

    • JMK aka The Overshare says:

      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.

    • Drew says:

      They no like Yankees.

    • AJ says:

      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.

  21. baka nakamura says:

    i stick with burnett. dude’s on fire.

  22. Salty Buggah says:

    AJ! Dirty little motherfucker!

  23. ansky says:

    Pregame guys taking pics of Alicia Keys’s sweet ass! hilarious

  24. JobaWockeeZ says:

    Sleeping Giant Tex followed none other by Matsui…kinda fitting.

  25. Klemy says:

    Okay, this Hero thing is terrible.

  26. NYTraveller says:

    Getting the leadoff man on would be a refreshing change

  27. Vinny the Bull says:

    And FOX has successfully killed 7 epileptics.

  28. Riddering says:

    That was the worst advertising attempt I’ve ever seen.

  29. Frigidevil says:

    That may have been the stupidest promo for anything, ever.

  30. Derby says:

    That was a stupid thing by fox

  31. Girardi out to the mound says:

    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?

  32. YankeeScribe says:

    I say let AJ start the 8th but keep him on a short leesh. If he lets a batter on base, bring in Mo

  33. AJ says:

    DJ Hero highlight = probably the worst plug for a company ever. They didn’t show a home run, a K, or anything. Terrible.

  34. Stadium Garlic Fries says:

    WHy not pinch hit Hinske?

  35. Phanatic Philly says:

    Are the Yankees going to take out Burnett????

  36. Jake H says:

    The zone for Hairston is huge right now

  37. ansky says:

    why isnt Hinske up here?

  38. Justin R says:

    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).

  39. Derby says:

    I really think that Joe Buck and Tim McCarver all circle jerk in the opponents lockerroom after every game.

  40. Salty Buggah says:

    Mo for 6 again? I think I’d AJ with Mo ready whenever there’s trouble

    • Ivan says:

      I probably start the inning with AJ, but early trouble go to Mo, or you could start the inning with Mo.

  41. gxpanos says:

    Am I the only one who doesnt want to see AJ in the 8th?

    At the very least, only let him go after Ruiz.

  42. baka nakamura says:

    oh joe, you’re full of so many interesting little gems about baseball history.

  43. Mike Pop says:

    Jerry World!

  44. Salty Buggah says:

    Hairston! Girardi’s a genius!

  45. ShuutoHeat says:

    Hey look, it’s Jeeerrry!

  46. Arman Tamzarian says:

    Bye Bye Pedro

  47. Accent Shallow says:

    Hey, not bad by Hairston.

  48. JackISBACK says:

    Jerry, please return to your regularly scheduled bench warming and sun flower devouring. …..ERRRRRRR……


  49. Drew says:

    HAIRY!!! :)

    Let’s get it Melk. Do your fuckin thang meng.

  50. Vinny the Bull says:

    Bring in Gardy to run + defensive upgrade.

  51. baka nakamura says:

    run gardner?

  52. CT Yankee says:

    OMG Girardi’s a Genius

  53. Reggie C. says:

    Oh god no.

    Not BG.

  54. Arman Tamzarian says:

    Hairston’s had good at bats, he can play Saturday as well

  55. Bob Stone says:

    Gardner – Lewt’s see a SUCCESSFUL steal for a change

  56. Keanu Reeves says:

    Why Gardner here? Why not save him to PR for someone who’s…slow?

  57. AJ says:

    Charlie Manuel leaving Pedro out when he’s over his limit and tiring?

    /Grady Little’d

  58. Tank the Frank says:

    Gardner better get his ass on to second base.

  59. gxpanos says:

    Ha. Gardner.

    Can he go 0-4 as the “Dave Roberts” guy this postseason? Stay tuned.

  60. Jake H says:

    Gardner needs to run on this next pitch. Don’t let melky bunt!

  61. JobaWockeeZ says:

    Why Gardner? Now if they PH for Posada you really don’t have a catcher. Unless they put in Swish.

  62. Jackson says:

    It’s time for Jorge to jack one.

  63. Josh K says:


  64. If Molina gets up right now, I’ll be angry.

  65. Mike Pop says:

    Those are our guys! Came up through OUR minor leagues!


  66. baka nakamura says:

    that’s hot stuff!

  67. Derby says:

    We actually strung together 2 hits!!!!!!!!!!!!!! omg!!!!!!!

  68. Jake H says:

    nice! Now pinch hit for Molina!

  69. Salty Buggah says:

    No bunt. Make Gardy steal first at least.

    See! Melky can hit!!!!!

  70. JackISBACK says:

    Girardi pushing all the RIGHT moves now. WOAH!

  71. Hairston, Gardner, and Melky, all contributing.

    Suck it, Phillies.

  72. Stadium Garlic Fries says:

    there u go guys..there u go..

  73. Mike Axisa says:

    Jorge. Jorge Jorge Jorge.

  74. Keanu Reeves says:


  75. Riddering says:


    Bottom of the order just happened.

  76. southernyankeefan says:

    Here comes the offense.

  77. Alex S says:

    speed kills!

    Manuel pulling a Grady Little?

  78. Drew says:

    That’s my boy!!!!!!
    :) :)

    /Double Smiley face’d

  79. ShuutoHeat says:

    Hey Pedro,

    Fuck you and suck this.

    Sincerely, Yankees nation

  80. Will says:

    Grady Little’d

  81. Reggie C. says:

    Back to back hits !!


  82. Esteban says:

    LET’S GO.

    We need a Hip Hip

  83. Phanatic Philly says:

    Manuel has to take Pedro out. WTF.

  84. slappy white says:

    Grady Little/d

  85. dkidd says:

    girardi is a genius (once more)

  86. Stadium Garlic Fries says:

    we need jorgie juiced one here..

  87. WHO’S

  88. AJ says:

    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.

  89. ansky says:

    I always thought Manuel sounded like Grady Little…thinks like him too.

  90. slappy white says:

    if we get 2or 3 do you still go with Mo for 2 innings ?

  91. Alex S says:

    you’ll regret that smile

  92. Josh K says:

    Pedro is such a friggin’ tool.

  93. Doug says:

    lol, Pedro is totally milking it here.

  94. Stadium Garlic Fries says:

    somethings never change..Pedro implosion at exactly 100 pitches..

  95. Salty Buggah says:

    Haha, he smiled!

    Nice game though by Pedro. Hats off to him.

  96. Riddering says:

    Manuel consults book on Jorge-Pedro, doesn’t want the bases loaded on a HBP.

  97. southernyankeefan says:

    ha pedro gets a kick out of the boo birds

  98. Johnny says:

    Hah… Gotta love pedro. He pitched great and is a character. Baseball needs that.

  99. MikeD says:

    He has a very prissy walk.

  100. Ivan says:

    Lets go Afflac runs here.

  101. Hova says:

    No one I love to hate more than Pedro. Hopefully the Post depicts him with a tail and horns tomorrow in honor of Halloween.

  102. Esteban says:

    I dunno, Pedro pitched really well. I don’t think the Yankees were really his daddy tonight

  103. Bob C says:

    lol, you gotta love that smile by pedro, give respects for a great performance by the future HOF’er

  104. Justin R says:

    Bruney batter to batter than “our only reliable bullpen pitcher besides Mo” Marte, right?

    • Accent Shallow says:

      The only way I want to see Bruney in the 8th is if the Yankees put up an 11-spot here.

    • Stadium Garlic Fries says:

      Are you sure Bruney wasn’t a typo from u? he is not even allowed in fair territory..forget mound

  105. gxpanos says:

    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).

  106. Tank the Frank says:

    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

  107. Jay says:

    They’re bringing in Park??

    OH. BABY.

  108. The Artist says:

    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.


  109. Salty Buggah says:

    This world does not need a Wanda Sykes show.

  110. baka nakamura says:

    nice beard.

  111. Josh K says:

    Pedro will always be a douche nozzle…

  112. Hall and Nokes says:

    It’s time.

  113. Reggie C. says:

    Chad Ho has a beard? Philly must really be growing on him.

  114. Klemy says:

    Chan Ho Roadkill

  115. Hova says:

    Park looks like the Asian version of Red Sox Johnny Damon

  116. AJ says:

    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!

  117. Mike Axisa says:

    Why no Madson here?

    • Accent Shallow says:

      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.

  118. Johnny says:

    Weird. I would actually take a patented Posada DP here for a run.

  119. Brazilian Yankee says:

    Comon Jorge, a flyball. It’s all we need.

  120. Jorge, why are you turning from that pitch?

  121. Ace III says:

    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

  122. baka nakamura says:


  123. Vinny the Bull says:

    Hip hip!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  124. Salty Buggah says:

    HIP HIP JORGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  125. Klemy says:

    Holy shit, we have hitters!

  126. CT Yankee says:

    Hip Hip

  127. JackISBACK says:

    Jorgie BOY!!!!

  128. I guess it was all a part of his plan. My bad, Jorge.

  129. ansky says:

    FIRED UP!!!!!

  130. Stadium Garlic Fries says:

    see ..real catchers can hit like that

  131. Alex S says:

    JoPo muthafucka!

  132. Jake H says:

    insurance runs are the best runs.

  133. Esteban says:

    Hip Hip
    Hip Hip

  134. charlespoet says:

    AJ is the man!!!!

  135. yankees=warriors says:

    Puuulease, you think Po is afraid of Park?

  136. MikeD says:

    Any one want to give odds on a bunt here?

  137. ansky says:

    CHP’s beard is terrible…it looks like a bad disguise.

  138. Please do not bunt. Please.

  139. JobaWockeeZ says:

    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.

  140. Phanatic Philly says:

    Happ should of been brought in to make Posada bat righty but what can you do. Looks like the Yanks are waking up. Great.

  141. Bryan says:

    Why is JETER bunting!?!?

  142. Brazilian Yankee says:

    Why are you bunting Derek?

  143. Stadium Garlic Fries says:

    Don’t bunt here Jeter..swing away..

  144. Tseng says:

    Sigh. Jeter’s not really trying to bunt is he?

  145. JackISBACK says:

    Like a good backup catcher, Jorge Posada is there for you!!

  146. Jackson says:

    Jeter. Stop bunting, you’re Derek fucking Jeter.

  147. Riddering says:

    Jeter cannot be taking his bat out for Johnny’s.

  148. ansky says:

    our hottest hitter should not be bunting!!!

  149. Stadium Garlic Fries says:

    what did Jeter achieve by giving up 2 free strikes?

  150. AJ says:

    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.

  151. Vinny the Bull says:

    I don’t understand why Jeter tries to do this. Does he know who’s batting directly behind him?

  152. ShuutoHeat says:


  153. JMK aka The Overshare says:

    What are you fucking doing?

  154. Tseng says:

    Wow. that’s ridiculous.

  155. Accent Shallow says:

    What the shit, Jeter.

  156. Wow.

    Are you fucking kidding me, Derek? What a fucking awful decision.

  157. Phanatic Philly says:

    Wow, thank you Jeter.

  158. Brazilian Yankee says:

    What is he doing? Jeter is out of his fucking mind.

  159. JobaWockeeZ says:

    What was that Jeter?

  160. yankees=warriors says:

    My god, what was Jeter thinking?

  161. Bryan says:

    why dont you just give him an out jeter?

  162. ansky says:


  163. Salty Buggah says:

    OMG Jeter

    major facepalm!

    Stupid on every level

  164. Jackson says:

    You’ve got to be kidding me.

  165. Jake H says:

    stupidest play ever

  166. Klemy says:

    What in the world was he doing???

  167. MikeD says:


  168. Esteban says:


  169. Stadium Garlic Fries says:

    wow..Epic meltdown by captain..

  170. Mike Axisa says:

    Absolutely awful. Swing the fucking bat.

  171. slappy white says:

    WTF ? Jeter…Really ?

  172. Arman Tamzarian says:

    I’m confused right now

  173. baka nakamura says:

    nice call tim.

  174. Bob C says:

    really fing dumb worst part about his game, he thinks its good to bunt

  175. Reggie C. says:


    That was fucking terrible.

  176. Hall and Nokes says:

    That was inexplicable on every level.

  177. Doug says:

    Very un-Jeterian.

  178. cjc says:

    wtf was that what an awful awful play

  179. AJ says:


    Everything good in that inning now has a shit stain on it. That was a terrible decision.

  180. I love Derek Jeter, but I will slap the shit out of him if I see him for that.

  181. JackISBACK says:

    WTF JETER!!!!

  182. Mike Pop says:

    Good job Jeter….

  183. trueblue says:

    WHAT THE FACK ARE YOU DOING?????????????????????

  184. Drew says:

    I don;t think Joe ordered that bunt. Maybe on the first strike, I doubt he left it on though.

  185. E-ROC says:

    terrible jeter.

  186. Jim says:

    wow. just….wow. jeter, wtf.

  187. Hugh Jassman says:

    Hey guys, no DP at least.

  188. 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.

  189. The Artist says:

    Heads down play by Jeter.


  190. Jay says:

    Wow. Totally dumb move by one of the smartest guys ever to play the game.

  191. Johnny says:

    Maybe the dumbest play I’ve ever seen Jeter make in 13 years.

  192. Hova says:

    Jeter just wanted to piss off all of RAB and he succeeded.

  193. Mike says:

    who is that, and what have they done with jeter

  194. NYTraveller says:

    McCarver’s right (gulp)- bad idea to bunt especially with 2 strikes

    (temperature in hell dives 10 degrees – no sign of frost yet)

  195. Phanatic Philly says:

    I cannot believe that Jeter would bunt there. Talk about a major Thank You in Philly land.

  196. Warren says:


  197. Derby says:

    Dammit, how do you not get a bunt down?

  198. JobaWockeeZ says:

    Tim McCarver says it all…

  199. pete says:

    face. palm.

  200. Marc says:

    Girardi overmanaging again…

  201. Riddering says:

    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.


  202. danny says:

    jeter i love you but that was fucking retarded, its Chan Ho Park for crying out loud

  203. ansky says:

    I dont even know what to say….that was awful on so many levels.

  204. Bob Stone says:

    Who called that brillinat move? Jeter or Girardi? Jeter is too smart to do that which leaves us with only one choice.

    • JMK aka The Overshare says:

      No way Girardi has him bunting with two strikes. He may have called Jeter to do it initially, but even that is questionable.

  205. charlespoet says:

    that was a horrible wasted AB

  206. ShuutoHeat says:

    I think I’ve said it twice already….

    That dancing chick is scary ugly….

    and I hate the Blackberry commercials.

  207. Klemy says:

    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…

  208. acb says:

    i love mcarvers moan when jeter bunted with two strikes.

  209. Stadium Garlic Fries says:

    This AB by Jeter was worse than him hitting in DP while swinging..

  210. Stadium Garlic Fries says:

    This AB by Jeter was worse than him hitting in DP while swinging..

  211. Bob Stone says:

    Unbelievable – I just don’t believe I saw that!!!

  212. Lanny says:

    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.

  213. baka nakamura says:

    yes! look at what the phillies have done! look! look!

  214. Hugh Jassman says:

    Maybe Jeter is was not comfortable swinging there.

  215. Brazilian Yankee says:

    Hey, not a first pitch pop out. Thats progress.

  216. Klemy says:

    Did Eyre eat the buffet table?

  217. Salty Buggah says:

    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!

  218. baka nakamura says:

    fucking bullshit.

  219. Bryan says:

    You just cant predict baseball


  220. JMK aka The Overshare says:

    That bounced!

  221. Doug says:


  222. Salty Buggah says:

    BAD CALL! Yanks get not break! Umpires stink!

  223. Brazilian Yankee says:

    That ball bounced!! Come the fuck on.

  224. southernyankeefan says:


  225. Reggie C. says:

    I dont know what to say…


  226. Jeter’s attempted bunt makes that look a hundred times worse.

  227. ansky says:


  228. yankees=warriors says:

    The Phillies are a damn cheating team…

  229. Lanny says:

    But hey MLB dont get instant replay or anything.

  230. Girardi out to the mound says:

    WOW. Inning over compared to bases load 1 out. That is a HUGE freaking missed call.

  231. Ivan says:

    Should of More runs, oh well. Mo Time.

  232. trueblue says:

    How do you miss that?????????????????

  233. Keanu Reeves says:


  234. Derby says:


  235. AJ says:


    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.

  236. Stadium Garlic Fries says:


  237. Jay says:

    Thanks umps. YOU SUCK ASS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  238. MikeD says:

    Return of the Horrible Umpiring, now playing at a stadium near you.

  239. Jake H says:

    bad call there. ball short hopped it.

  240. Klemy says:

    That is horseshit. I have to say that this postseason has convinced me fully to use instant replay. These guys suck.

  241. JackISBACK says:

    Motherfucking Umpires. Atleast ask for help you fucking retard. Ugh.

  242. Bob C says:

    not the umps fault, see thats why we should have fucking replay

  243. Drew says:

    I’m fucking tired of this shit. Fuck umpires. It’s the fucking World Series. Fuck umps and fuck Selig.

  244. Hova says:

    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!!!!

  245. The Three Amigos says:

    That is a HUGE fucken swing… i hope its not a game changer.

  246. Matty Ice says:

    that should be bases loaded, 1 out

  247. gxpanos says:

    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.
