Keep it within Lidge distance…
i figure it will be madson
You’re stealing my thunder.
3 runs. meh, no problem off lidge.
Dammit Phil Coke
Hold them this inning and put up another 3 spot and I’ll be very happy. Lets Go Yankees!
No thanks to Coke.
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?
He should start in Scranton
I think it comes from him being hot right before his injury.
I retract my lobbying.
who else makes the catch in left center? did u see hairston’s ab?
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?
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.
THis is what happens when they play like crap!! Ant stories!
Somehow it developed into a bit of an inside joke.
You were insistent & had never heard it before.
I had never*
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!
Im just saying, they’re good is all.
All this time, JMK, you’re missing out.
Who is pitching? Still Hughes?
Gardner is terrible. He needs to be bunting for basehits.
yeah, I don’t know why they didn’t say anything to him after his last at bat. Something like “bunt, swing, anything…”
I’m pretty sure he’s an admittedly awful bunter, which sucks for someone with his speed.
which is beyond belief. With his wheels he needs to be like Brett Butler
Has zero approach right now; partly due to inactivity. Gardner is in over his head. Pop outs are no shocker. Cano however … wtf ?????
why does Gardner keep trying to hit shit in the air? he’s so quick that shit is just annoying.
Treat him like Willie Mays Hayes and make him do 50 pushups every time he hits a ball in the air.
Seriously… This is like watching the Spring Traning scenes from Major League. Push Ups are teh answer
with jorge, matsui, jete, damon, teix and a-rod 3 is not a problem.
AstroBoy has better looking hair than Chase Utley.
Chase Utley has that Terry Benadict hair going pretty strong for the playoffs…
Would you guys consider this a “moral” victory if we put pressure?
nope. A moral victory is Arod not back tapping Kate Hud after the celebration tonight.
Hold ‘em and put up three plus with Jorge/Hideki/Top.
Do it, Yanks. Do it.
BG must only bunt he is so feable. Next time he pops up I want him to do pushups in the batters box.
swish cano grit killed that pretty fast
That’s what they’re there for!
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…
slow, slower, and slowest.
Madson’s looked good. But the guys on my fantasy team have stories to tell about how he handles pressure.
How are we not hitting Chan Ho Park though?? The guy stinks and we’ve seen him a plenty…
thats what i mean. its almost like el duque out there towards the end of his career. like 3 different changeups
Yah, in our heads I understand “Park sucks” automatically, because of how we remember him.
But he was very effective this season.
Gardner, huh? Man, why do some guys want more of that? Right down the pike, as they used to say.
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
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.
OUCH those Utley/Ibanez solo shots sting right now
You’re the man.
Those Phil Coke unnecessary extra home runs sting worse…
A “left specialist” who gives up 2 solo jacks to lefties in the world series. Nice job. Glad we brought you aboard…
Wait, are you really Michael Kay?
If I’d known Yankees would get 5 off Lee I’d have said surely they must win.
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.
fucking cheap ass hit.
Jeter has to make that play. That ball bounced 30 times before it got to the OF.
Fucking Ruiz. Jesus Christ.
Another ROCKET given up by Phil Hughes…
the world series jitters HAVE to be gone by now right?
It was a joke. That ball bounced 10 times before it got out of the infield.
my comment was more to the general
Ruiz = Jeff Mathis.
Come on, dp.
lets get outta this.
Maybe I’m being fickle, but I’m back to feeling the same way about Cano as I did a year ago.
You’re being fickle.
I think its the chewing gum and nonchalant look on his face that kills me.
Stop paying attention to dumb, irrelevant shit like gum-chewing and facial expressions. Don’t search for narrative to explain the random.
Yeah, that’s fickle. 162 is more the real deal than the how he does in the pressure cooker at a young age.
you dont trade or bench a guy who hit .320 with 25 jacks
Woah, I wouldn’t go that far. Shitty Cano > Good Hairston
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?
Never mind. I see Hinske and Hairston were both used. Only avail bat was Matsui, and need himj to hit for pitcher. Sorry.
who is gonna play center, pena? and why pinch hit with 2 out when matsui can back 2nd next inning?
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
Hairston and Hinske were already used as pinchhitters. With both Melky and Guzman not on the roster, we have no more outfielders.
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.
Now he’s throwing that curve a little too much…
There’s men all over the United States at bowling alley’s drinking Budweiser that look like Matt Stairs.
If this isn’t a perfect description, I don’t know what is.
What’s wrong with Phil Hughes?
B) Lack of confidence
C) Succumbing to the pressure of WS
I’m gonna go with B
B and C go hand in hand
i think A
I’ll say mostly A and some C
I’m sure it’s a little bit of it all…
How about D, sample size
or E, he’s only 23 years old
We will get the tying run to the plate this inning
Other than Mariano and Marte, this bullpen has been a complete abortion.
D-Rob says “Yo!”
utley: harrison ford in “regarding henry” before he gets shot
stairs: king ralph
Phil reduced to cleanup duty…quite a fall from grace.
i dont think it was clean up duty, but build confidence duty.
Plus the fact that those 3 outs he just got were huge in keeping the game within striking distance.
Not Hughes’ fault. BABIP fail.
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!
There we go, nice turn boys.
I love me some slow old man action to ensure DPs.
Excellent. One more out then demoralization time.
Does it count as DP with Stairs running to first?
Huge. Get this big mouthed mother fucker and rally in the ninth!
1 more out, Philly!
Here. We. Go.
I’m going guess choppers and sharpening his axe are two of Stairs’ favorite hobbies.
On Wednesdays he goes shopping and has buttered scones for tea.
Hughes is back. throwing the curve too.
LET’S GO HIT!!!!
Damn, they have Madson up.
Here we go…
Good inning by Hughes. Maybe he’s back.
Good job Hughes. Lets win tonight Yankees
Lidge: Persona non grata.
Let’s do it Yanks!
Alright, time to rally again.
GET THE FUCKIN’ BAYONETS OUT!
3 runs for 3 outs. It can be done.
Nice job, Philly. Come on Po, need a little OBP right now.
Nice job by Hughes. Coke should take lessons.
they may roll with park until he gets in trouble…
Jorgie needs to get this shit started right and quickly!
Matt Stairs will finally retire after this right? right?
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!!!!
COME ON MOTHERFUCKAS DO THIS NOW
Can I has Brad Lidge?
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.
Nothing like lowering your ERA 24 runs in one inning.
let’s not forget madson blew 6 saves this year too.
Yeah? He’s looked pretty sharp against us thus far…
just means we are due. lol.
I don’t like Madson in there…we don’t do much off him…or haven’t anyway
lets not be “men who stare at hittable piches”!
~MORE THAN A FEEEEEELING~
Let’s him ‘em so hard they have no one left but Lidge.
Moral victory: 1 run
Win for the Ages: 4 runs
tying run to the plate
Let’s do this!
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.
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.
I believe they might still be shitting themselves…
The inevitable strike 1 down the middle call to Posada…
Awwww, we may have to work for these three runs after all.
Let’s do it.
Think the Phils have the scouting report that Jorge can’t hit curveballs?
Madson was on my fantasy this year and he cost me a lot of points in the standings!…let’s hit this punk!
turn into that one jorge.
Posada, gotta take one for the team there. Bah.
damn, lidge not even warming up.
does jorge swing here?
lets do it
YES POSADA!!! KEEP A GOOD IDEA!!!
Can Pena catch?
For one inning, sure.
yes he does
no team until now, buck
get ready to sound sad, bitch
Alright, good start!
There we go!
myers is as big a headcase as lidge so if he comes in same dif.
HERE WE COME FUCKERS!!!
YES!!!!! ATTA WAY TO GO, PO!!!
Posada made it to second!
Great start for the BIG rally
HERE. WE. GO.
Posada, you magnificent bastard!
great start but we so could have used that homer….
here we go go!
YEAH BABY THAT’S HOW YOU START IT
Hip Mo-fuggin Hip!
Get Jorge home! Then hit a 2 run home run! Or 3 is even better!
If it bleeds we can kill it!!!!!!
Oh ya. Great way to start. Hopefully this blows up his confidence
HERE WE FUCKIN’ GO BABY! LET’S GO HIDEK!
I just gave a cold icy stare because someone in the room said “it’s impossible for them to tie it up”, nearly stabbed him with my tooth pick…. luckily my girlfriend stopped me.
Never count them out
And the tying run is on deck…
So close to being gone
Myers up. Is Lidge at a wedding tonight?
I would like to request a credit increase on my “Those Utley/Ibanez solo shots really sting right now” comment
can we give road pie?
Posada on 2nd is key…this would be the easiest double play combo in world series history otherwise lol
Good, get Brett Myers up.
We ain’t his wife. We hit back.
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.
Missed the pitch. That was the pitch to hit.
That was his pitch
NO, THAT ONE WAS
I’m glad he didn’t hit a hr there, would be a rally killer.
Come on Godzillla
After we’re done with Madson, maybe we can beat up on Meyers and his wife?
OH YEAH BABY, HERE WE COME
I think I just soiled myself
TYING RUN TO THE PLATE!!!
Called that shit five threads ago.
You’ve been calling a little too much tonight Axisa!!!
Just getting warmed up
Rut Roh Phillies.
This team is so amazing.
These fuckers don’t quit.
CAN WE ACTUALLY PULL THIS OFF???
YES we can
And Tokyo is in flames…
Excellent! Jeter drive it!
HR = Tie Game
nice call Axisa, they did bring the tying run to the plate, but was it too late?
Jeter hit a 3 run home run! Pena should be pinch running here though.
Madson’s expression: “HUH? WHA?”
You know what would be a good mascot for the Yankees? THE FUCKING PHOENIX CUZ WE CAN’T FUCKING DIE YOU PHILLY PHUCKERS!
WE’RE GONNA WIN THIS THING…../Agent Harris’d
No pinch runner?
How many people do we even have left on the bench?
Just Pena. But Matsui a prime DP candidate, and everyone coming up can run well enough.
You da man Mike. Let’s do this.
fuck you Phil Coke fuck you
these fans are scared shitless right now.
FUCK YOU PHIL COKE I HOPE YOU DROP DEAD GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH
Captain Jete… necesitio big hit please.
I hate Coke more with every swing.
Pena for Matsui, Yes?
i love this
Waaaahhhh, they’re talking to the pitcher.
Waaaahhh, that slows the game down.
why isnt pena in????
Tying run! Let’s go Captain!
LIDGE is UP
No swinging at first pitch crap, Jeter.
Why no pinch runner for Matsui?
OK. El Capitan!!!
Brad Lidge sighting
The 2009 Yankees:
put pena in for a potential play at the plate
Jete going deep.
Why is matsui on first base. I really don’t understand that one at all…
“Before this stuff goes any further, I’d like you all to know that I will kill you and I’ll get away with it, cause I’m Kurt F’ing Russell.”
Isn’t this where a pinch runner should be used? Jeter does into a good number of double plays.
Goddammit, you’re prescient.
No DP Jeter
Man, if he could sort that DP crap, he’d be unbelievable.
paging mister rivera…
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.
i’m feeling bases loaded for damon, mvp of the series
i think pena is the emergency catcher at this point. no one else is left on the bench. no?
Lidge is up in the pen – Phils are getting desperate!
Jeter. You fuck.
Right on the money Axisa. Tying run is at the plate.
What did I tell you?
Fuck. Dammit Jeters.
Oh well…now it literally IS Phil Cokes fault…
scratch last prediction. shiteous AB
WOWOW that’s the last guy i expect to kill the rally
I unfortunately called that
That won’t go on the Jeter highlight reel.
Wow. Worst thing ever just happened.
Decidedly unclutch. FUCK
Having a PR would have really helped there.
Nah, not really.
yeah that was a perfect DP ball
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.
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!
Marcus, why would you even put the words dp on this board. You are the phil coke of posters.
Worst AB possible
Its ok, guess who’s the go-ahead run now?
It won’t even get that far. Jeter totally killed us.
Nah, he just made it more dramatic so it’d be the greatest win ever. That’s why hes the captain
Really thought we had a chance there…. fuck Phil Coke…
Okay Johnny, make some more magic happen with 2 outs.
I saw that coming when Jeter took the ball before right down the middle.
Fuck you Jeter. Fuck you Burnett. Fuck you Coke. Fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck.
Come on, Johnny. Just get on base here.
Just too many runs tonight. Games is not over. C’mon Johnny.
Damn, I so predicted that. Damn my mind for thinking of such things.
There’s the Jeter double play we talked about at the beginning of the year…
Oh well…nice comeback anyway while it lasted…
and playing the role of Johnny Damon for this at-bat, the secretary from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off!
This is not over
Do it again, Johnny! Another epic AB!
Derek had that 2-0 pitch, that was his. Let it go for a strike, and then that. Argh.
So much for Mr. November…
AJ, Coke and to a lesser degree Jeter lost this game.
The Yankees lost the game.
if they lose.
Man, FUCK your blame game shit.
Battle Johnny. Dig in baby.
Helluva comeback no matter what.
Damn proud of this team.
Come on Damon, keep it alive.
Not over yet!
Johnny, I fucking love you.
All up to Tex’s cold ass bat.
Damon does it again
DAMON! I like that guy!
Damon is magic.
Now COME ON MARK!!!
Yes Johnny. We are still alive.
Damon is on an amazing run here.
Can Tex come through? Get hit by a pitch?
Never say die
sign on the dotted line johnny.
Damon is one cool customer.
TYING RUN TO PLATE
Great at-bat Johnny.
C’mon T-Money. Reach base for me.
Tex, if we ever needed a HR from you. This is it!
Deja vu all over again?
That’s one tough son of a bitch.
MARK TEIXEIRA PPLEASE PEASE PLEASE PEASE PLEASE !!!!!
Can we please get to A-Rod?
This is your moment to stop sucking, Tex.
Please hit one out Tex! Please you owe us! Please! Please! Go Yankees! Complete the rally!
They gave it a run, switched some momentum, if they come up short. Would love to see a Tex message here though. Damon has been large.
Tex if you come through here, I will not criticize you for the duration of your contract.
Damon, is WOW.
What was worth yelling at?
Johnny and Boras just smiled at the same time. Cha-ching!
Tex is gonna do it
Where was that pitch?
6 inches outside?
WHATS WITH THAT FUCKING OUTSIDE CORNER BEING CALLED AGAINST US NOW???
That was outside ump, wtf
that was not a fucking strike
Tex is due!
wow tex is looking horrible
#1 that wasnt a strike
#2 if only jeter wasnt a dp machine…
what the fuck he has no plate discipline at all its horrendous as soon as he hits the playoffs like wtf happened to him
C’mon Tex. At least get on base.
Jeebus, please don’t strike out Mark. Let A-Rod get to the plate.
Let’s go, Tex! Let’s go, Tex!
LET’S GO TEX.
Come on Madson hit Tex.
Tex…I have no words.
Tex is worthless with the bat. At least they gave him 180 millions to play D.
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.
Pitch in the dirt.
Tex you are cold as ice.
Damnit Tex and Jeter
Valiant effort boys. Go get ‘em Wdnesday.
The Paulie effect should happen also.
Thanks Tex. You made it look easy.
Tex + low offspeed = ugh.
Win this shit at home now.
I really hate Phil Coke at this point. Not that it plays out the same, but man…
Funny, I really hate Burnett.
Tex can’t seem to lay off those down and away pitches
Its really going to come down to him having a Tino moment. . . . . whenever that is.
Would have been better if we lost 8-2 or whatever it was before…
Na. This was great. P o neil theory too.
no no no, Paul O’Neil theory in affect for tomorrow. I like the fight and grit
Filthy untruths. Didn’t feel that way after Anaheim, don’t feel that way now.
Fucking garbage. Someone sit Tex down and figure his swing out. Goddammit.
And goddamn Phil fucking Coke.
We need Pettite to come through big time now… keep ‘em under 6 runs!
Paul Oneil theory in affect for tomorrow. Yankees hopefully come out like gangbusters
TEX SUCKS !!!!!!!!!!!
Tex is killing me now. what a brutual ab.
Let’s get them Wednesday. The World Series is ours. We are going home with the lead.
Too bad Arod bats 4th and not 3rd.
yankees played horrendous, phils had their ace, no lidge, and hit the shit out of the ball, and still they almost lost. We are taking this shit on Wednesday.
thats gd right, we got this shit in the Bronx
A big fuck you to Burnett and Coke
Lets not get on Tex. Jeter destroyed that rally
phil coke destroyed that rally
Well technically there wasn’t a rally until after Coke…
Let’s not get on Tex for hitting under .200 and striking out at a Howard-like pace. It’s not like he’s the number 3 hitter or anything.
the black holes at 1st
You are joking ? Derek can’t do it everytime. Tex needs to pull some weight,
Damn, Tex has been awful. 4 more LOB tonight by him.
The rally was great though. Good momentum going back to the Bronx. This thing is over in 6.
non-MVP of the game, Phil Coke. bullpen was holding them until that point
We blew this game. too many fucking chances to win. coke is garbage. at least we get to win it at home
Awesome call vs. Tex:
That was soooo close.
Geez, that’s like 6 inches outside!
Those last two homers killed us
New Coke killed us with those two dingers.
Oh, well. It’ll be more enjoyable winning it at home.
I’m still waiting for Tex’s first hit on a changeup. Heck, I’m waiting for him to make contact with a changeup. If that’s all you can get for a 180 millions…
Pedro Martinez resents this
Tes is garbage right now
Let’s see them beat us with a pitcher not named “Cliff Lee.”
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.
Paulie Theory in full effect, brother.
I felt the same way after the comeback loss in Anaheim. This team doesn’t let anyone steamroll them.
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.
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*
incase you forgot, our starter gave up 6 runs in 2ip
But it was the right decision to start AJ on 3 days rest! Totally!
And Texeira should be benched right?
Tex needs to just lean in and get hit.
Hate to admit, but I was thinking the same thing.
FUK YOU PHIL COKE I WILL SEE YOU IN HELL
I’m sorry, that may have been too much.
or a bit mild
FUCK YOU DOLPHIN!!! FUCK YOU WHALEE!!
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.
Agree with all, but c’mon… Pettite on 3-days rest?! Are we really all comfortable with this??
Would you be more comfortable with Chad Gaudin?
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.
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.
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.
Why would you ever concede a game in the WS? That’s just ridiculous.
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?
Winning the series, that is.
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.
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!
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.
death valley 2.50?
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.
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
I was curious about that decision myself.
Wednesday, we win it at home and show Pedro who’s daddy again.
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?
He’s toying with our emotions… just waiting till we get back home to break out the bat.
Heh, let’s hope so.
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?
if your hair war full of Buck and McCarver spunk would you smile?
Put it on mute. For real.
I dunno, but I don’t recall Arnold putting so much hair gel on in any of the Terminator movies
We got Pedro on Wednesday.
Place is going to be rocking.
Does this fit the O’Neill theory?
Yes it does… we scored in both the 8th and the 9th. It ain’t over till it’s over
Great, now I’m even more sure we’re winning this.
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.
WE score six runs in a game started by Cliff Lee and we lose. That seems almost impossible.
Gaudin could have done that…. just sayin.
Almost any of our starters could have. We missed a great chance to wrap it up. The only consolation is doing it at home.
Maybe Cecil Fielder should start at 1B on Wed.
“Damon proving once again it’s a lot easier to get two strikes than three strikes.”
Ladies and gentlemen, Tim McCarver.
Maybe they should switch Alex and Tex. I think you’d want the best hitter to get more AB’s.
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.
we never quit
phillies starter in game 6: our son
phillies starter in game 7 (if it happens): a guy who wishes the season were over
winning in the new house will be sweet
what the paul o’neil theory?
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.
If a team scores runs in the late innings of a blowout, they’ll score runs the next game.
I was so ready to go party in the streets tonight
Mo wants us to celebrate over hump day.
we’ll get em wednesday
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?
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.
girardi didn’t sound very confident about Pettitte.
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.
I agree, I don’t know how he let that 2-0 fastball go. It was right down the middle.
i think most thought yanks in 6 and i believe that’ll be it.
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
