    I AM SO READY TO FUCKING ASSASSINATE SOMEONE RIGHT NOW.

    Horseshit. Double horseshit.

  • nathan

    WTF was that… 2 gift outs?

  • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

    That makes up for the good call they made last night, huh?

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

    LOL at Bob C saying it’s not the umps fault. You’re right, they should not be held responsible for their blatant mistakes.

    • Bob C

      dude there is no way anyone could make that call correctly seriously

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

        Except Jorge? He’s got supersonic vision?

        • Bob C

          jorge had his back turned…

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

            ..you’re right. An ump shouldn’t make the right call. Not his fault. I blame A-Rod.

            • http://www.retire21.org Mike R. – Retire 21

              I blame Canada!

        • http://www.stonerh1@aol.com Bob Stone

          With his back to the ball no less.

        • Bob C

          they showed it full speed and it was impossible to tell from the front… the ump was behind him and had to make a quick decision, case in point to why we need instant replay, that one is not on the umps

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

            1st base ump had a horrible view. No way he can see any type of close trap play and make an accurate call. I agree with that.

            Home plate umpire can’t see from there?

            • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

              And, if you don’t have a good view, you use all the evidence at your disposal to make a judgment call.

              Saying that he caught it was the wrong judgment, because the evidence available says he didn’t.

    • ShuutoHeat

      Just like the guy who stabbed someone to death, it’s not his fault. Just like the guy who robbed the bank, it’s not his fault.

  • slappy white

    INCONCEIVABLE

  • Johnny

    FUCK IT!!! THE YANKEES WILL WIN ANY WAY!!! THE PHILLIES CAN HAVE A FREE INNING! IT WONT MATTER!!!

  • NatalMike

    These are supposed to be the best umps??

  • goose

    Can we fire them all?

  • JackISBACK

    Its stupid. If Howard caught the ball, there is NO reason to throw to 2nd, he would just have to tag the base, if THAT DIDN’T tip off that fucking retard….UGH.

  • pete

    the amazingness of pitch/fx technology tells me that human umpires are an antiquated practice

  • Hugh Jassman

    This call could very well cost the yanks this game.

  • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

    I send AJ out for the 8th. 108 pitches.

    • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

      aaaand there’s Mo.

    • Johnny

      I’m on the fence… Gotta think long term (a little). I want A.J. on 3 days rest.

  • rbizzler

    What a bunch of garbage.

    Clearly, Howard knew he didn’t catch the ball. That is why he went to second and didn’t just touch up at first.

    Epic Fail.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    So they are only allowed to change calls agaisnt the Yankees? Amazing.

    • Esteban

      the ump has no idea if he caught that. It would be impossible for him to see it, which is why THERE NEEDS TO BE REPLAY

      • Bob C

        yep

      • http://www.retire21.org Mike R. – Retire 21

        I’m not Sherlock Holmes here, but couldn’t they just, I don’t know, check the ball for dirt?

  • Mike R

    That is an absolute garbage call. I really hope that it doesn’t end up effecting the outcome of the game, because that is pure and utter BS.

  • Newbie

    I guess we have to have 4 hour games so it gets called correctly.

  • Phanatic Philly

    The Umpires are horrible in MLB.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bm61weFrK4c JobaWockeeZ

    2009 umpires all suck ass.
    COME ON BUD SELIG I WANT FUCKING REPLAY, YOU CAN HAVE IT IN THE MLB YOU BASTARD!

  • Lanny

    For all those books and stats Girardi reads he never read the part where teams don’t give up free outs???

    Especially in the 7th inning.

    With the RP on the ropes. Crowd up and excited.

    And your best hitter up???

    He forgot that section?

    • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bm61weFrK4c JobaWockeeZ

      It’s Jeter who did that. Your lack of intelligence is stunning.

    • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

      Jeter bunts on his own. If you followed the team you would know that.

    • Salty Buggah

      Dude, Jeter does that shit himself all the time.

  • Girardi out to the mound

    Worst part about Jeter bunting…

    Having to say these words: McCarver was right

  • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

    Alright, Mo. Fuck someone up.

  • NatalMike

    INSTANT REPLAYS NOW

  • charlespoet

    Fucking overweight fat ass white men who can move should not be umpires…

    MOVE YOUR ASS YOU FAT FUCK

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

    I saw better umping in the LLWS. This shit is ridiculous. If Jorge can see it from second why can’t the fucking man payed to watch it.

  • The Only Yankee Fan in Nebraska

    I’ve seen better Umpires in local youth sports leagues.

  • Keanu Reeves

    You know, it was a missed call, but it almost serves them right for Jeter, the ALL TIME YANKEE HIT LEADER, not swinging the damn bat.

    That being said….#$%@!!!

    • http://twitter.com/riddering Riddering

      Serves “them” right for Jeter making a poor decision?

    • JMK aka The Overshare

      That’s nuts. I know you’re upset, but please, be rational.

  • Joker, The

    I would like for those cumguzzling umpires to be shot in the ANUS.

  • Girardi out to the mound

    That may be the most game changing missed call of the postseason so far

  • JMK aka The Overshare

    I know this will be a hot-button topic coming up with the CBA approaching, but Bud Selig NEEDS to implement some sort of instant replay. Selig has to do this. There simply is not a justifiable reason for not implementing it.

    Your thoughts?

    • Ghost of Scott Brosius

      Yes.

      • Phanatic Philly

        agreed 100%

    • Keanu Reeves

      The only instant replay expansion I’d like to see is making all fair/foul calls okay to review, not just home runs.

      • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

        Not enough.

        Everything other than balls and strikes is reviewable.

        And, I want a serious crackdown on balls and strikes from a training and performance standpoint as well.

        The umps are expected to be 100%. That’s the goal, and it’s not unreasonable. Give them the technology, training, and accountability to make that happen.

        Now.

    • Johnny

      damn it

    • http://www.stonerh1@aol.com Bob Stone

      Agree totally. I wasn’t in favor of expanding Instant Replay until the HORRIBLE umpiring this entire post season. It has to be implemented immediately.

      With HD TV, all these umpiring errors are even more glaring. It makes the umps look ridiculous and incompetent and brings into question the integrity of the game.

      We’ve got high tech in our lving rooms with HD TV – We need high tech at the ball park with Instant Replau to complement it.

      IT’S TIME!

  • Ghost of Scott Brosius

    Remember when we thought it would be starter for seven, phil, then mo?

  • Phanatic Philly

    Can’t the other umpires help the blind one out?

    • Keanu Reeves

      I’ll be honest, I thought it was caught at first. I find it hard to believe anyone really saw that correctly.

      • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

        It was borderline, but the actions of everyone on the field, both Yankees and Phillies, indicate that clearly the only person who thought it was caught was the ump.

      • http://www.stonerh1@aol.com Bob Stone

        Agree

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bm61weFrK4c JobaWockeeZ

    I can umpire better with my damn eyes closed.
    Or are the umpires trying to do that already?

  • nathan

    and why not convene tonight?

    they did last night

    • JMK aka The Overshare

      No one overruled.

  • Salty Buggah

    If he fuckin caught the ball, why did he start going to 1st!!!! Fuckin umpires! I hate them.

    • Jackson

      Um, well if he caught the ball then he would want to tag first to double up Posada. It’s the throwing to second that gives it away.

  • AJ

    But the umps human error is what makes baseball!

    /Tim Kurkjian’d

  • Derby

    I love how the 1B ump was BEHIND Howard I wonder how he can honestly say that howard caught the ball

  • GG

    we just had an out taken away from us late in a world series game……..really????

    • Girardi out to the mound

      2 outs.

      • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

        And, we gave the third away.

  • dkidd

    come on mo

    make it moot!

  • nathan

    that asshole ump was behind Howard
    how did he see through Howards dangling butt?

    • ShuutoHeat

      LOL

    • slappy white

      dangling butt is an awesome decription

  • Hova

    Someone has to be fired over this. I am so freaking heated right now. I hope these umps die. Die die die.

    In Mo we trust.

  • danny

    seriously though? in the world fucking series you gotta get that call right. terrible

  • Bryan

    I’m still in shock that one of the best hitters in all of baseball tried to bunt with runners on 1st and 2nd and no outs. Just horrible.

    • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

      Seconded.

      Jeter should be excoriated in the press for that tomorrow.

      All the shit writers used to sling at ARod is what Jeter should get. That one bunt was worse than all the popups and strikeouts from ARod’s postseason struggles put together.

      • http://www.stonerh1@aol.com Bob Stone

        I just find it hard to believe that Jeter with all his basebal acumen called that. I know that many of us here dump on Girardi, sometimes unfairly, but I immediately thought Girardi called that play.

        Upon reflection, maybe that’s wrong. Perhpas Jeter decided to gamble and outsmart everyone so that he could TOP his flip play and pad his “intangibles” stats.

        I can’t waait until the post game interview. Jeter will probably admit he did it on his own.

  • CT Yankee

    It was a bad call, but he was positioned correctly and there is no way he could get that right. And instant replay would have what? put Damon on first, runner on third?

    • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bm61weFrK4c JobaWockeeZ

      It could have completely changed this game.
      But MLB loves bad calls.

    • rbizzler

      And Posada at 2nd as the throw took J-Roll off of the bag.

  • MikeD

    Really? I saw it as a bounce at real speed.

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

      Yeah, I heard it bounce at real speed.

  • The Only Yankee Fan in Nebraska

    Who cares how fast the play is.

    WE NEED REPLAY SO THE CALL IS CORRECT.

      I used to be the other Yankee fan in Nebraska, but I moved.

          • JMK aka The Overshare

            Can I tag along the next time you visit?

  • Johnny

    In fairness… that would of been tough to call real time. Sucks anyway.

  • Alex S

    Bud Selig better make some serious changes this offseason. time and time again they’ve been ruining calls all posteason long. They’re regularly out of position or quick to make a call. I know some calls have gone our way and some haven’t but it’s ruining the game

  • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

    Here’s my proposal:

    Home plate umpire is replaced by pitch F/X.
    The home plate ump is instead in the replay booth, in communication with the umps on the field. When a call is wrong, he tells them to reverse it.

    • Klemy

      I am all for that use in playoff games.

      • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

        Fuck just playoff games. Every game.

      Fill up an empty pool on top of a building with Styrofoam boxes.
      Then party.

        Let’s all get Blackberries and crunk-dance and form our own band.

  • NYTraveller

    If he caught it in the air and touched first Posada would be out anyway. The only reason to throw to second is if you don’t catch it and you’re trying to get the slow lead runner.

    Brilliant analysis Tim

  • Klemy

    Why is there no strike call on Rollins when he doesn’t swing?

  • charlespoet

    Ya like those fat fucks meeting are going to change something, they can’t even seen their ding dongs how are they going to tell another clone he was wrong.

    Bad bad bad umpiring. Well done MLB

    • JMK aka The Overshare

      Do you have to speak entirely in hyperbole?

      • charlespoet

        didn’t realize this was a grammar class. Sorry Mr. JMK aka The Overshare.

        • JMK aka The Overshare
        • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

          It’s not a grammar problem, it’s an intensity problem.

  • Derby

    These Phillies don’t have a lot of experience with MO. I’m expecting a quick 123 8th and 9th

  • Newbie

    It was a tough call. If Howard thought he caught that why wouldn’t he just step on 1st?

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

      That’s the million $ question.

    • Klemy

      Exactly.

  • nathan

    this is a fuckin conspiracy

  • Salty Buggah

    Haha, you know what’s hilarious? 4 mins before that horrible call, the article about Selig refusing to expand replay just came up on Yankees.com

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

    The Phillies have large revenue, they’re paying off the umps!

    more work cut out this offseason: bud selig or the mets?

  • cjc

    this east coast bias is out of control there is clearly a conspiracy with these umps I am calling for an investigation headed up by Halos Heaven

  • charlespoet

    On the other hand, Joe just sent a message to the bullpen. You suck right now and I can only trust one person.

  • Jay

    I’m not worried because Mo is in the game. But that call has me fuming. Sorry, but that was not close and the home plate umpire needs to make that call. If he’s not looking, he’s not doing his job.

    Total suckage by umpires this year. They should all be fired.

      Fuck human elements.

      • Girardi out to the mound

        I agree. But I also do not get why people who are against replay say it will slow down the game. How long did it take us to realize that was the wrong call. 10 seconds after the call was made?

        • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bm61weFrK4c JobaWockeeZ

          Honestly, it’s a BS retort trying to justify no replay. But that argument sucks ass.

    How about McCarver and Buck saying that Howard touched first at any point. McCarver will say Hunter was safe because he complained and had the best view, but give it up and say no biggie when the Umps give the Phils TWO free outs?

      • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

        That.

        Mo should be accompanied with a warning to other teams: Don’t try this at home.

    • Jackson

      Because thats what you do in the World Series. When tiring someone out isn’t an issue you only use your best pitcher when a win is on the line.

      Also is Mariano Rivera. Which really is all that needs to be said.

  • AJ

    Let’s go!

    Let’s add some runs and give a big middle finger to the umps in this one.

  • Jackson

    Mariano Rivera is a bad ass.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bm61weFrK4c JobaWockeeZ

    For a second I thought the umps would call them both safe. You never know.

    • giselle

      lol.

    What a feed by Cano!!! WOOOHOOOOOO

  • http://twitter.com/hopjake Jake H

    Mo don’t scare me like that!

  • slappy white

    Wow 23 pitches for Mo….but hey HE IS MO

  • charlespoet

    Ok, sliding that far out of the base path needs to be looked at for next year.

    • trueblue

      ehh, everyone does it. ARod about killed Aybar in game 6..

      • slappy white

        God I wish he would have

  • trueblue

    Did McCarver just question Cholly??? Unreal

  • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

    *exhales*

  • giselle

    THAT’s how you do it. That’s how you turn a double play!

  • Jay

    And Mo says: EFF YOU Chase and your umpires.

  • pete

    well that was nice

  • JackISBACK

    Oh wait, Oh wait, the RF line ump just called Utley safe, he saw him touch the base, and give himself a manicure before the ball got to TEX!!

    • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bm61weFrK4c JobaWockeeZ

      That sounds like the umps we know and hate.

  • Lanny

    Hey dont worry Girardi. Manuel may be worse than you.

    How dont you send the runners there

    Maybe thats Girardis thing. Make the other manager screw up. Scioscia obliged him.

    • NYTraveller

      It’s not as big a missed call as bases loaded 1 out for Tex, Buckhead.

      THe umps do suck, though. And O’Gorman has the plate next. Should be fun

    • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

      Girardi’s had another great game, much to your dismay, Lanny.

  • Girardi out to the mound

    Is McCarver serious? Jeez man could you be anymore obvious.

    Utley grounds to Cano. McCarver: UGH! UGH! I do not understand why they did not send the runners. And the Yankees get out of it”

    Is that serious!?

    • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

      He did call for it before it happened.

      • Girardi out to the mound

        He actually just said in disgust that “The Yankees get out of it.”

        If that was Cliff Lee last night it would have been and LEE GETS THE DOUBLE PLAY TO END THE INNING! Instead of praising the GREATEST closer of all time he says in disgust the Yankees get out of it. IDK, maybe I am making too big a deal about it.

    • trueblue

      I am impress with how quick Tim can take the Phillies cock out of his mouth to drop jems like that.

  • Hugh Jassman

    Well that half inning got the heart rate up.

  • charlespoet

    Yankees need 3 runs and then call it a night for Mo.

    • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

      Yankees need NO runs.

      You’re still worried? Ugh.

  • ShuutoHeat

    I wonder, do these assclown fucktard umps ever fear for their own lives?

    Because on one hand there are a lot of crazy people out there and on the other there are a whole lot of people who watch baseball out there.

    • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

      Deep breath, my friend. It’s just a game.

    • charlespoet

      they are lucky they are not Soccer officials….think we all know what happens to them.

  • baka nakamura

    i’d be happy with another run or two after that.

  • nathan

    i demand a strike zone as large as a pack of cards and 2 make up calls

    these MFers are the best .. Bud Selig should stop going to David Letterman show and attend these god damn games

  • Ivan

    Thanks be to Mo.

  • danny

    good job by jeter who got took DOWN by victorino lol

  • The Three Amigos

    Thank Mo for Mo’s inducing a rare DP.

  • BronxBomber44

    McCarver just “ughed” in disgust as that ground ball was hit. Rewind if you don’t believe me.

    • AJ

      I heard it. As I said in an earlier post, their behavior is unprofessional and unbecoming of announcers on national television.

      • yankees=warriors

        Word. The only time I listen to my local announcers is when these jerks/ jokes are on…

      • JMK aka The Overshare

        Sadly, it’s perfectly in line with announcers on national television.

    • slappy white

      I couldnt hate him more unless I actually did kill him ….so it doesnt matter what he says

  • The Only Yankee Fan in Nebraska

    That’s called a make-up, Joe.

  • charlespoet

    This umpiring crew is just fantastic. They should all run for Congress and run this country.

  • southernyankeefan

    So thats a big missed call but the one earlier wasnt????

  • JMK aka The Overshare

    Well check that out, he’s safe. 1B ump is great!

  • http://www.retire21.org Mike R. – Retire 21

    I guess that was the make up call.

  • yankees=warriors

    Love that song in the background with the game replay.

  • ansky

    The umps giveth and the umps taketh away.

  • http://twitter.com/riddering Riddering

    Cry me a river. That call wasn’t nearly as bad as the earlier DP call.

  • ShuutoHeat

    Oh yea? Big mis-call? How about the other big mis-call we had earlier? FUCK YOU BUCK AND FUCK YOU MCCARVER.

  • Salty Buggah

    Bad call. But the bad call for us hurt more.

    Cmon FOX, aren’t you going to say that it’s not an easy call now?

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bm61weFrK4c JobaWockeeZ

    Oh STFU, Fox don’t act like the Yanks didn’t have a BS DP play called on them too.

  • Stadium Garlic Fries

    Buck, STFU…u were not bothered this much when Yankes were sent out of inning..

  • Craig

    I think I’m gonna vomit if I have to listen to these two anymore.

  • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

    Alex will make you pay for hitting his boy.

  • Bob C

    bigger missed call utley or damon’s liner?

    • Girardi out to the mound

      Damon’s liner was a way bigger missed call. Bases loaded 1 out compared to 1st and 3rd 2 out against the best closer of all time

    • BronxBomber44

      We would’ve had bases juiced 1 out

  • Arman Tamzarian

    You sonofabitch!

  • Klemy

    Ouch

  • pete

    makeup call

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bm61weFrK4c JobaWockeeZ

    Fucker.

  • ansky

    niiiiice….thats the way to do it Phillies. go ahead and bean us…wake up the Sleeping Giant.

    • Accent Shallow

      That was clearly not intentional.

      • ansky

        i know. you look for motivation where you can get it.

  • JackISBACK

    lol, McCarver and Buck analyzing that missed call, while the other much bigger one was just a footnote the next inning. Great. Tex better not be hurt, can’t afford to lose him in the struggling lineup.

  • MikeD

    I think it’s time for A-Rod to get his first World Series hit, which should be a homer.

    • Vinny the Bull

      That’s what he’s thinking too, and that’s why he’s 0-for-the series. He’s not thinking line drive.

  • Stadium Garlic Fries

    Alex, u r welcome to join the WS anytime u want

  • Salty Buggah

    No DP A-Rod…I’d love one of those unclutch 2-run HRs right now.

  • ansky

    wow they sure are giving a lot of air time to this sending the runners bullshit.

  • Will

    Mo, the bridge to Ace. Wait, what?

  • Jay

    Ok…we GET IT McCarver. They should have started the runners. STFU!!!!!!!!

  • bobtaco

    Why is Ace warming?

    • pete

      get work in, presumably

    • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

      Emergency.

      Don’t worry, it’s academic.

  • ShuutoHeat

    Seriously, whoever fucking thinks Buck and McCarver are pro-Yankees must be fucking retarded or they have their fucking heads so far up their fucking assholes they can’t even reason.

    • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bm61weFrK4c JobaWockeeZ

      Halos Heaven does.

      • ShuutoHeat

        yeah and they have their heads so far up their assholes

        • JMK aka The Overshare

          The leader of their pack is a reverend. How disrespectful of you, Shuuto.

          • ShuutoHeat

            He is? I thought he was just some guy with his head up his ass. Sorry reverend, I’ll now call you “reverend with his head up his ass”. Thanks JMK for the correction.

  • Derby

    I better not see Aceves in this game

  • http://www.stonerh1@aol.com Bob Stone

    Make up call on that double play me thinks.

    • Bob C

      no one does make up calls, that would be like asking to lose your job

      • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

        Haha, really? You don’t think they do make up calls?

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

          Bob C doesn’t blame umps. He blames a lack of instant replay.

  • Bob C

    well hopefully A-ROD can start to heat up starting here, if not hopefully he gets going soon and the team can keep em going till then

  • ansky

    hmmm…AROD’s helicopter swing is back..not a good sign.

  • Stadium Garlic Fries

    Girardi will be a 1st manager to lose a job after winning WS if he replaces Mo here with Ace..

  • Matty Ice

    Ryan Howard’s nose looks like a cauliflowered ear.

  • JackISBACK

    Alex, I know the WS is new to you and all, but the postseason DOES NOT end after the ALCS. Please take note.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Great call ump. That pitch was at least a foot off the plate.

  • Johnny

    that was horse shit

  • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

    Okay that looked outside to begin with and it took the umprie about 20 minutes to cal it.

  • Klemy

    Who is that man and what did he do with Arod?

    • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bm61weFrK4c JobaWockeeZ

      Well shitty umpires can make great players bad.

      • Klemy

        Yes, but 3 Ks 2 days in a row can’t be all umpire.

  • Hova

    Damn, A-Rod is off his game in the WS. All he should do tomorrow is bang Kate Hudson. Time to recharge.

  • Reggie C.

    Alex is having a disastrous WS.

    Phillie’s stadium hopefully puts a charge in him.

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

      Come on… Him and everyone not named Derek did bad yesterday.

      Today he hasn’t gotten a hit.

      Don’t act like he is 0 for 13

      • NYTraveller

        Perspective is not a strong suit in the middle of a game, I guess

        • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

          Perspective is not the strong suit of the modern Yankee fan.

          Intelligence is questionable as well.

    • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

      Alex is having a disastrous WS.

      It’s two games.

      SSS.

  • Jay

    High and outside called strike three. Jeebus.

  • The Three Amigos

    Alex needs to hit a single and stop swinging for the fences…

  • Accent Shallow

    Joe Buck is really pushing the “A-Rod: still an unclutch choker, no matter what he does” storyline.

  • Derby

    6 Ks by ARod in 2 games. I know I can’t really be mad because he kind of got us to the World Series, but I only have so much patience.

    • Accent Shallow

      I can’t be mad about last night, no one was touching Lee, except (sorta) Jeter.

      I bet he crushes Hamels.

    • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

      I know I can’t really be mad because he kind of got us to the World Series, but I only have so much patience.

      Get more patience.

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

    Great closeup of Mo’s forehead.

    I saw a discoloration he may want to get checked out.

    • ShuutoHeat

      /Costanza’d ?

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

        haha!!!

    • Accent Shallow

      At least you’re not hiding in his bushes watching him shower, a la Scrubs.

  • http://twitter.com/riddering Riddering

    Look at Matsui: 2 for 2 with a walk. He’s the sneaky killer in the lineup.

  • nathan

    now whos pen was weak?

  • Jim

    News flash RAB: We would most likely not be here without A-rod. It’s everyone else’s turn. My gosh how quickly we forget.

    • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

      No one’s saying he sucks. No one’s saying he’s trash. We’re just saying he looks odd up there. He’s getting way too pull happy.

    • Brazilian Yankee

      There’s no harm in pointing out A-Rod has been terrible to start this WS. It’s the truth. Nobody is taking anything away from Alex, it’s just that he’s been really bad during this 2 games.

    • http://twitter.com/riddering Riddering

      Yeah, the fan sentiment of “what have you done for me lately” with Alex is getting more and more extreme.

      • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

        “Yeah, the fan sentiment of “what have you done for me lately” with Alex is getting more and more extreme. -s are ignorant asshole jerkfaces.”

        Fixed.

  • cjc

    with a strikezone like that he’ll go 0 for the WS the fuck blue the fuck

  • charlespoet

    ARod is channeling Swisher.

  • slappy white

    Too many fucking strikeouts

  • nathan

    i blame Scioscia… asshole made ARod rusty

  • Salty Buggah

    OK, here’s what Alex needs to do . Stop fuckin swinging at those inside pitches. None were strikes right there. Also, stop pulling/swinging at outside pitches.

  • ShuutoHeat

    Cano needs to just imagine empty bases when he’s at bat.

  • AJ

    C’mon Grit! Line a double into the gap!

  • Derby

    Maybe Gardner can be the huge spark we need!

  • JackISBACK

    The Grit, The Gut, the Lightning BOLT to put this game away!!

    • Brazilian Yankee

      There’s a really small chance Gardner can even make contact with Madsen’s FB.

  • ShuutoHeat

    Scouting Report on Gardner:

    1. He’s fast.
    2. He’s fast.
    3. He’s fast.

    • Will

      Maybe they’ll get confused and try to pick him off in the batter’s box and throw him something slow over the plate.

  • DreDog

    I wonder what that conversation on the mound was like.

  • JMK aka The Overshare

    Gardner for the home run! No? Weak hit and he reaches on a single? I’m okay with that.

    • JMK aka The Overshare

      I was close…

  • ansky

    This strike zone blows!

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Ump is Madsen’s boyfriend.

  • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

    Can’t say i didn’t expect that from Gardner. Okay, Mo. Slam it shut.

  • yankees=warriors

    All up to Mo now!
    Go get them~

  • AJ

    I don’t care about experience – they are still making mistakes. If you’re going to brag about the umpiring crew, then they shouldn’t make mistakes. Plain and simple.

    *Granted, I’d never want to be an umpire. But still, I expect those men who choose to be umps to make good calls.*
