World Series Game Five Spillover Thread V
World Series coming back to the Bronx after Yanks drop Game Five
  • Mike bk

    i figure it will be madson

    • Dave

      Agreed.

    • JMK aka The Overshare

      You’re stealing my thunder.

  • baka nakamura

    3 runs. meh, no problem off lidge.

  • slappy white

    Dammit Phil Coke

  • Brian

    Hold them this inning and put up another 3 spot and I’ll be very happy. Lets Go Yankees!

  • Jake K.

    No thanks to Coke.

  • JMK aka The Overshare

    To all those who lobby for Gardner to be our starting CF: Do you watch him at the plate? How can you possibly advocate him as a starter?

    • trueblue

      He should start in Scranton

    • bonestock94

      I think it comes from him being hot right before his injury.

    • aj

      I retract my lobbying.

    • Mike bk

      who else makes the catch in left center? did u see hairston’s ab?

      • JMK aka The Overshare

        Yes, his defense is pretty good (though he sometimes takes poor routes to the ball and misjudges it), but I really don’t think it makes up for his offense. Watch him swing. It just looks all kinds of off. He should be slapping at the ball and getting out of the box quickly. Not taking wild upper-cuts and watching balls go by. You can’t have a hitter like that consistently down 0-2. He doesn’t have the power or mechanics to get out of those situations.

        What does Hairston’s at-bat have to do with this?

    • TheLastClown

      Have you ever watched ants eat? They carry their food to their larvae, who digest it into a nasty goo, which is then carried to progressively more important strata of ant society, being further digested at each level, ending with the queen.

      Thus she gets the purest food.

      But they don’t each eat individual grains of anything, let alone grits that expand inside them & pop them.

      Sorry, you got me curious.

      • aj

        THis is what happens when they play like crap!! Ant stories!

        • JMK aka The Overshare

          Somehow it developed into a bit of an inside joke.

          • TheLastClown

            You were insistent & had never heard it before.

            • TheLastClown

              I had never*

      • Mike Pop

        Wow.

      • JMK aka The Overshare

        I told you that the Wikipedia told me dry grits can kill entire colonies in 48 hours. I haven’t done the research myself.

        I don’t eat grits because I think they taste funny. Then I read about the ant colony thing. Now? Even the slightest probability that it happens has sealed it—I will never eat grits again.

        Good research, though!

        • TheLastClown

          Im just saying, they’re good is all.

          All this time, JMK, you’re missing out.

  • Bobtaco

    Who is pitching? Still Hughes?

  • trueblue

    Gardner is terrible. He needs to be bunting for basehits.

    • crapula

      yeah, I don’t know why they didn’t say anything to him after his last at bat. Something like “bunt, swing, anything…”

    • Keanu Reeves

      I’m pretty sure he’s an admittedly awful bunter, which sucks for someone with his speed.

      • trueblue

        which is beyond belief. With his wheels he needs to be like Brett Butler

    • Reggie C.

      Has zero approach right now; partly due to inactivity. Gardner is in over his head. Pop outs are no shocker. Cano however … wtf ?????

  • ansky

    why does Gardner keep trying to hit shit in the air? he’s so quick that shit is just annoying.

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

      Treat him like Willie Mays Hayes and make him do 50 pushups every time he hits a ball in the air.

    • trueblue

      Seriously… This is like watching the Spring Traning scenes from Major League. Push Ups are teh answer

  • Mike bk

    with jorge, matsui, jete, damon, teix and a-rod 3 is not a problem.

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

    AstroBoy has better looking hair than Chase Utley.

    • http://www.freedigitalphotos.net/images/photos/Rose_Blood_and_Gun.JPG Rose

      Chase Utley has that Terry Benadict hair going pretty strong for the playoffs…

  • aj

    Would you guys consider this a “moral” victory if we put pressure?

    • ansky

      nope. A moral victory is Arod not back tapping Kate Hud after the celebration tonight.

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

    Hold ‘em and put up three plus with Jorge/Hideki/Top.

    Do it, Yanks. Do it.

  • Josh

    BG must only bunt he is so feable. Next time he pops up I want him to do pushups in the batters box.

  • GG

    swish cano grit killed that pretty fast

    • http://www.freedigitalphotos.net/images/photos/Rose_Blood_and_Gun.JPG Rose

      That’s what they’re there for!

  • http://www.freedigitalphotos.net/images/photos/Rose_Blood_and_Gun.JPG Rose

    We haven’t touched Madson…if he comes in we could be in some trouble. Anybody else and I’ll be happy.

    How are we not hitting Chan Ho Park though?? The guy stinks and we’ve seen him a plenty…

    • http://ibleedblueandwhite.com Jamie

      slow, slower, and slowest.

    • claybeez

      Madson’s looked good. But the guys on my fantasy team have stories to tell about how he handles pressure.

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

      How are we not hitting Chan Ho Park though?? The guy stinks and we’ve seen him a plenty…

      http://www.fangraphs.com/blogs.....rk-is-good

      • http://ibleedblueandwhite.com Jamie

        thats what i mean. its almost like el duque out there towards the end of his career. like 3 different changeups

      • Joe D.

        Yah, in our heads I understand “Park sucks” automatically, because of how we remember him.

        But he was very effective this season.

  • claybeez

    Gardner, huh? Man, why do some guys want more of that? Right down the pike, as they used to say.

  • slappy white

    ive always been a gardner fan but he really does hit like a little leaguer…..but we got big bats in the 9th if we hold em here

  • Joker, The

    I miss Melky already. And I still hate you Phil Coke. If it was 6-5 I’d say it’s almost guaranteed Yankees win. Now…not so much.

  • Michael Kay

    OUCH those Utley/Ibanez solo shots sting right now

    • Mike Pop

      You’re the man.

    • http://www.freedigitalphotos.net/images/photos/Rose_Blood_and_Gun.JPG Rose

      Those Phil Coke unnecessary extra home runs sting worse…

      • http://www.freedigitalphotos.net/images/photos/Rose_Blood_and_Gun.JPG Rose

        A “left specialist” who gives up 2 solo jacks to lefties in the world series. Nice job. Glad we brought you aboard…

    • TheLastClown

      Wait, are you really Michael Kay?

      /dumb question’d?

  • Hugh Jassman

    If I’d known Yankees would get 5 off Lee I’d have said surely they must win.

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

      Just like Game One: CC goes 7 IP 4 H 2 ER and they lose? Damn.

      Still time to win this game, though. Just hold them to zero runs here.

  • Mike bk

    fucking cheap ass hit.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Jeter has to make that play. That ball bounced 30 times before it got to the OF.

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

    Fucking Ruiz. Jesus Christ.

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

    Another ROCKET given up by Phil Hughes…

    • Michael Kay

      the world series jitters HAVE to be gone by now right?

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

        It was a joke. That ball bounced 10 times before it got out of the infield.

        • Michael Kay

          my comment was more to the general

  • Jay

    Ruiz = Jeff Mathis.

    Good lord.

  • claybeez

    Come on, dp.

  • baka nakamura

    lets get outta this.

  • bonestock94

    Maybe I’m being fickle, but I’m back to feeling the same way about Cano as I did a year ago.

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

      You’re being fickle.

      • bonestock94

        I think its the chewing gum and nonchalant look on his face that kills me.

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

          My advice:

          Stop paying attention to dumb, irrelevant shit like gum-chewing and facial expressions. Don’t search for narrative to explain the random.

    • claybeez

      Yeah, that’s fickle. 162 is more the real deal than the how he does in the pressure cooker at a young age.

    • Will

      you dont trade or bench a guy who hit .320 with 25 jacks

      • bonestock94

        Woah, I wouldn’t go that far. Shitty Cano > Good Hairston

  • Joe D.

    I missed most of the game, so not sure who is available, but why not PH for Gardner there? Get someone with pop up there?

    I mean, defense doesn’t matter unless we get hits and runs, eh?

    Am I foolish on this one?

    • Joe D.

      Never mind. I see Hinske and Hairston were both used. Only avail bat was Matsui, and need himj to hit for pitcher. Sorry.

    • Mike bk

      who is gonna play center, pena? and why pinch hit with 2 out when matsui can back 2nd next inning?

    • http://www.freedigitalphotos.net/images/photos/Rose_Blood_and_Gun.JPG Rose

      Pitcher is coming up…and it sets up the order nice for the 9th…

      Posada, Matsui, Jeter, Damon, Tex, Arod…then team buzzkill from there

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

      Hairston and Hinske were already used as pinchhitters. With both Melky and Guzman not on the roster, we have no more outfielders.

      • Joe D.

        Yah, I went back and checked the game log after I posed the Q. Sorry about that.

        Got home and started watching just after Coke gave up the 2nd dinger.

        Which I means I’m responsible for the three runs we scored, by the way.

        Damn “job”.

  • http://www.freedigitalphotos.net/images/photos/Rose_Blood_and_Gun.JPG Rose

    Now he’s throwing that curve a little too much…

  • Jay

    There’s men all over the United States at bowling alley’s drinking Budweiser that look like Matt Stairs.

    • Mike Pop

      IETC

    • bonestock94

      If this isn’t a perfect description, I don’t know what is.

  • Hova

    What’s wrong with Phil Hughes?

    A) Fatigue
    B) Lack of confidence
    C) Succumbing to the pressure of WS

    I’m gonna go with B

    • Alex S

      B and C go hand in hand

    • dkidd

      i think A

    • Bobtaco

      I’ll say mostly A and some C

    • http://www.freedigitalphotos.net/images/photos/Rose_Blood_and_Gun.JPG Rose

      I’m sure it’s a little bit of it all…

    • Frigidevil

      How about D, sample size

      • http://www.freedigitalphotos.net/images/photos/Rose_Blood_and_Gun.JPG Rose

        or E, he’s only 23 years old

    • Frigidevil

      We will get the tying run to the plate this inning

      • Frigidevil

        /comment fail

  • jjik

    Other than Mariano and Marte, this bullpen has been a complete abortion.

  • dkidd

    utley: harrison ford in “regarding henry” before he gets shot

    stairs: king ralph

  • PsiFighter37

    Phil reduced to cleanup duty…quite a fall from grace.

    • Mike bk

      i dont think it was clean up duty, but build confidence duty.

      • Keanu Reeves

        Plus the fact that those 3 outs he just got were huge in keeping the game within striking distance.

  • Vinny the Bull

    Not Hughes’ fault. BABIP fail.

  • aj

    So in the 19th century, an actor’s brother saves a politician’s son from being hit by a train. They never see each other again. The actor was John Wilkes Booth and the Politician was Abraham Lincoln. Crazy story. Yanks in 6!

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

    There we go, nice turn boys.

  • http://twitter.com/riddering Riddering

    I love me some slow old man action to ensure DPs.

  • Keanu Reeves

    Excellent. One more out then demoralization time.

  • http://twitter.com/tjamato TJ

    Does it count as DP with Stairs running to first?

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

    Huge. Get this big mouthed mother fucker and rally in the ninth!

  • TheLastClown

    Awright, GBDP!

    1 more out, Philly!

  • Mike Pop

    Here. We. Go.

  • ShuutoHeat

    I’m going guess choppers and sharpening his axe are two of Stairs’ favorite hobbies.

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

      On Wednesdays he goes shopping and has buttered scones for tea.

    Alright, time to rally again.

    GET THE FUCKIN’ BAYONETS OUT!

  • Bobtaco

    3 runs for 3 outs. It can be done.

  • claybeez

    Nice job, Philly. Come on Po, need a little OBP right now.

  • Hova

    Nice job by Hughes. Coke should take lessons.

  • Josh

    they may roll with park until he gets in trouble…

    Jorgie needs to get this shit started right and quickly!

  • ansky

    Matt Stairs will finally retire after this right? right?

  • Brian

    Helluva job by Hughes! Lets Go Yankees! Win it tonight! Got the big bats coming up! I want multiple home runs!!!! Woo!!! Rally time!!!! I want to be chugging and pouring beers all over myself tonight!!!!

  • Joker, The

    COME ON MOTHERFUCKAS DO THIS NOW

  • PsiFighter37

    Can I has Brad Lidge?

  • Mike Pop

    Can the offense bail Burnett and Coke out? Can we make a dramatic comeback to take the World Series? Can we tie the game?

    We’ll find out after the commercial break.

  • lance

    Nothing like lowering your ERA 24 runs in one inning.

  • Mike bk

    let’s not forget madson blew 6 saves this year too.

    • http://www.freedigitalphotos.net/images/photos/Rose_Blood_and_Gun.JPG Rose

      Yeah? He’s looked pretty sharp against us thus far…

      • Mike bk

        just means we are due. lol.

  • http://www.freedigitalphotos.net/images/photos/Rose_Blood_and_Gun.JPG Rose

    I don’t like Madson in there…we don’t do much off him…or haven’t anyway

  • baka nakamura

    lets not be “men who stare at hittable piches”!

    • http://twitter.com/riddering Riddering

      ~MORE THAN A FEEEEEELING~

      • JMK aka The Overshare

        Well played.

  • http://twitter.com/riddering Riddering

    Let’s him ‘em so hard they have no one left but Lidge.

  • Bobtaco

    Moral victory: 1 run

    Win for the Ages: 4 runs

  • dkidd

    tying run to the plate

  • Justin R.

    Let’s do this!

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

    Okay so here’s an obscure reference:

    The Yankees, right now in the top of the 9th in Game 5 are like the 101st Airbone in the Ardennes during the Bulge. They can hold out and win. However, a rally in the ninth would be like Patton riding in and wrecking the Germans’ shit, giving the Allies a path to victory.

    • Mike Pop

      Weird.

  • Hova

    Can you imagine this Philly team right now with only a one run lead? They would be shitting themselves. Damn you Coke.

    Ok, I’m done with the Coke bashing.

    • Bobtaco

      I believe they might still be shitting themselves…

  • http://www.freedigitalphotos.net/images/photos/Rose_Blood_and_Gun.JPG Rose

    The inevitable strike 1 down the middle call to Posada…

  • Joe D.

    No Lidge?

    Awwww, we may have to work for these three runs after all.

    Let’s do it.

  • JMK aka The Overshare

    Think the Phils have the scouting report that Jorge can’t hit curveballs?

  • ansky

    Madson was on my fantasy this year and he cost me a lot of points in the standings!…let’s hit this punk!

  • Mike bk

    turn into that one jorge.

  • Joe D.

    Posada, gotta take one for the team there. Bah.

  • baka nakamura

    damn, lidge not even warming up.

    does jorge swing here?

  • Mike Pop

    • Yanks 4 Life

      For one inning, sure.

    We ain’t his wife. We hit back.

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

    I picked up Madson on my fantasy both times Lidge lost his closer’s job. Both times he posted double-digit ERAs and lost it back to Lidge.

    The pressure will get to him in a bad way again tonight.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Missed the pitch. That was the pitch to hit.

  • Esteban

    That was his pitch

    Isn’t this where a pinch runner should be used? Jeter does into a good number of double plays.

      Goddammit, you’re prescient.

  • YankeeScribe

    No DP Jeter

    • YankeeScribe

      Fuck

    • claybeez

      Man, if he could sort that DP crap, he’d be unbelievable.

  • dkidd

  • Marcus

    Jeter with the single. Tex hits into a DP and we all get distraught. A-Rod steps in a knocks one out to tie it.

      • Raf

        yeah that was a perfect DP ball

      • JMK aka The Overshare

        I was thinking having Pena at least have a head start and slide into Utley, making it difficult to turn a DP. Or hell, I don’t know, stealing a base, maybe.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Jeter really lost his clutchness to A-Rod. What a joke of an AB. Fucking terrible.

    Fuck you Coke you no good bastard. C’mon Damon hit a home run and follow suit Tex!

    • Brazilian Yankee

      It won’t even get that far. Jeter totally killed us.

      • Frigidevil

        Nah, he just made it more dramatic so it’d be the greatest win ever. That’s why hes the captain

    Tex is worthless with the bat. At least they gave him 180 millions to play D.

    • pete

      and be the runner up in the MVP. Seriously, i’d be nicer but i’m in a bad mood since the yanks just lost so here goes. STOP. Shut the fuck up with your ridiculous reactionary bullshit. Teixiera was the AL MVP runner up this year. he hit 39 fucking home runs and 2 more in the postseason (including a walkoff). He happens to have a weakness against changeups and madson’s is one of the game’s best. It’s tough when you fall behind 0-1 on a pitch 5 inches off the plate.

    • Brazilian Yankee

    Let’s see them beat us with a pitcher not named “Cliff Lee.”

  • Michael Kay

    dumb as it may sound, I’ve never felt better after a loss than tonight. They fought back into it, and were a Phil Coke inning and a un-Jeter like 9th inning from Jeter away from a possible win.

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

      Paulie Theory in full effect, brother.

    • http://twitter.com/riddering Riddering

      Yup.

      I felt the same way after the comeback loss in Anaheim. This team doesn’t let anyone steamroll them.

  • Josh

    It’s all good guys. Would have been nice, but it’s coming back to NY now to wrap it up. Don’t sweat it.

  • Joker, The

    Thanks for this one Coke. Thanks a bunch.

    Man, if someome would have told me they’d score 6 runs in this game I would have though they’d have it in the bag. *sigh*

    • Zack

      incase you forgot, our starter gave up 6 runs in 2ip

      • Brazilian Yankee

        But it was the right decision to start AJ on 3 days rest! Totally!

        • Zack

          And Texeira should be benched right?

  • crapula

    Tex needs to just lean in and get hit.

    • yankees=warriors

      Hate to admit, but I was thinking the same thing.

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

    FUK YOU PHIL COKE I WILL SEE YOU IN HELL

    I’m sorry, that may have been too much.

    • trueblue

      or a bit mild

      • Camilo Gerardo – your inception? fuck perception, go with what makes sense

        FUCK YOU DOLPHIN!!! FUCK YOU WHALEE!!

  • ansky

    Well on the plus side:

    1. This team never dies.
    2. We’ve now hit MAdson and Lidge…they’re running out of closers
    3. Cliff Lee will not pitch again.
    4. Pedro will.

    • ACC

      Agree with all, but c’mon… Pettite on 3-days rest?! Are we really all comfortable with this??

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

        Would you be more comfortable with Chad Gaudin?

        • ACC

          I would have felt more comfortable having Burnett and Pettite for 2 home games, both on full days rest with a real lineup behind them, sans Molina and Pitcher batting.

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

            But throwing Gaudin out there tonight is basically conceding the game. Yeah, Burnett shat the bed tonight but the chance of him doing so was still smaller than the chance of Gaudin pitching a great game and definitely smaller than Gaudin pitching an awful game. In the World Series, you don’t fuck around/play for the next game. I’d go to Burnett in this spot every day of the week and twice on Sundays.

            • ACC

              I guess we just disagree… I would have gladly conceded the game based on Burnett’s home/away splits and the terrible offense with Molina/Pitcher spot, confident that you’ve got 2 great pitchers on normal rest coming up at home, with CC for any emergencies. If the series were 2-2 coming into this game, I would have agreed with you, but this was such a foreseeable result, I would have opted to plan to wrap it up at home. Now, instead of going home confident that even though you lost to their best pitcher with your worst, you still have two rested arms coming up, it’s one gamble after another with Pettite and CC on short rest.

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

                Why would you ever concede a game in the WS? That’s just ridiculous.

                • ACC

                  First of all, it’s not a concession in that no one goes into the game assuming a loss, every player still strives to win. However, when your chances of winning are that much greater by using a lesser pitcher with a 2 game lead… I just laid out my reasoning in that long paragraph. Why do you disagree?

                • ACC

                  Winning the series, that is.

      • ansky

        I am. We fought back, Pedro’s old and the Philly bullpen sucks. I’m just so glad that I dont have to see those stupid fucking towels anymore.

        • yankees=warriors

          Can’t agree more.
          But frankly, we haven’t seen much of the towels the past few days…because the Phillies were mostly losing, LOL!

        • ACC

          I don’t doubt the offense, I just don’t have any delusions about Pettite’s ability to pitch on 3-days… maybe I’m just pessimistic, but to think that a 37 year-old pitcher with little success pitching on short rest can keep down an offense like the Phillies’ seems pollyana to me.

          • Camilo Gerardo – your inception? fuck perception, go with what makes sense

            death valley 2.50?

  • http://twitter.com/riddering Riddering

    What a game all the way to the end. The offense kept pressing, Hughes was sharp as well as Ace and D-Rob.

    Eh. Steaks and blowjobs are better in the Bronx.

  • TheLastClown

    Well, Cliph phucking Phifer phil-Lee wins without his best stuff.

    I thought Yanks in 6 before the series, now I’ll be vindicated, but this game was winnable.

    Marte should have been > Coke

    • DreDog

      I was curious about that decision myself.

  • PsiFighter37

    Sigh.

    Wednesday, we win it at home and show Pedro who’s daddy again.

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

    There is no doubt in my mind that the Yankees are winning this World Series. Absolutely none.

    But, seriously, Tex, where has your plate discipline gone?

    • Obnoticus

      He’s toying with our emotions… just waiting till we get back home to break out the bat.

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

        Heh, let’s hope so.

  • Jay

    The worst thing about this going back to the Bronx is that we have to listen at least once more to this awful Fox broadcasting team.

    And Chase Utley is like the fucking Terminator. Does that guy EVER smile?

    • trueblue

      if your hair war full of Buck and McCarver spunk would you smile?

  • yankees=warriors

    Does this fit the O’Neill theory?

    • Obnoticus

      Yes it does… we scored in both the 8th and the 9th. It ain’t over till it’s over

      • yankees=warriors

        Great, now I’m even more sure we’re winning this.

        • Obnoticus

          I know, Tex is just toying with my emotions by striking out. He wants us to have a heart attack when he hits the game winner Wednesday.

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

    WE score six runs in a game started by Cliff Lee and we lose. That seems almost impossible.

    • ACC

      Gaudin could have done that…. just sayin.

      • JFH

        agreed.

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

        Almost any of our starters could have. We missed a great chance to wrap it up. The only consolation is doing it at home.

  • BigBlueAL

    Maybe Cecil Fielder should start at 1B on Wed.

  • swisher’s fauxhawk

    “Damon proving once again it’s a lot easier to get two strikes than three strikes.”

    Ladies and gentlemen, Tim McCarver.

  • Brazilian Yankee

    Maybe they should switch Alex and Tex. I think you’d want the best hitter to get more AB’s.

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

      Meh, probably won’t do much good at this point. Rodriguez will still be pitched around due to Tex’s ineffectiveness. If Tex was still seeing the ball like he was and the hits just weren’t falling, then I’d be more inclined for a switch. However, they’d most likely still pitch around Alex and let Tex get himself out.

  • dkidd

    we never quit

    remember:

    phillies starter in game 6: our son

  • JFH

    what the paul o’neil theory?

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

      A team getting blown out or losing badly that tacks on a few runs at the end of the game hits better the next time out.

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

      If a team scores runs in the late innings of a blowout, they’ll score runs the next game.

  • Alex S

    • Obnoticus

      Mo wants us to celebrate over hump day.

  • Dela G

    we’ll get em wednesday

  • Marcus

    Joe Buck must have chosen the player of the game. I mean 7 IP 5ER 7H 3BB is not exactly Lee’s best game. Why not Utley?

  • jjik

    Burnett is not a battler. If he’s not feeling perfect, he falls to pieces. How many three run homers, preceded by a walk, did he give up this year.

  • aj

    girardi didn’t sound very confident about Pettitte.

  • Jorgie Juiced One

    A couple of thoughts:

    Jeter’s a weird guy. In spite of all his hitting accomplishments, it often seems he brings the mentally of .220 hitter with little power to the plate (hence the bunts and all). He’s the tying run at the plate and he takes a 2-0 fastball right down the middle.

    The ball-strike umpiring in this series has been atrocious. Both the first pitch to Swisher and Tex in big spots were well outside. The contrast with the LCS umpiring, which was excellent on balls-strikes, is glaring.

    • Marcus

      I agree, I don’t know how he let that 2-0 fastball go. It was right down the middle.

  • baka nakamura

    i think most thought yanks in 6 and i believe that’ll be it.

  • Russell NY

    If you are going to game 6 give their pitcher hell. scream phillies suck before a pitch is even thrown like they do in that dump
